Any solution to formatting reference Ids to something readable without the mouseover pop up?

Does anyone have a solution for showing reference Ids as their corresponding more human readable string?  The scenario is I have a table of cases, I want to show user friendly referenced object values (ie. don't show AccountId but show Account.name, don't show parent case Id but show parent cae number, etc.) for all possible related data for cases.  This is easily done with a Apex outputfield, but I don't want the standard Salesforce mouseover pop up box.

I have a solution that rips out the standard mouseover SF pop up after a VF page is loaded that works, but I am concerned that it can break easily.

If anyone has done this let me know.

Would OutputLink or OutputLabel works for you? You can also customize mouseover event on those components.
