Default How To PopUp Text Message within <li>

I am assuming that there is a simple way to popup text message when rolling over an entry in an html list. I assume javascript is the way to go. For instance, if I have a list:
<li>Line 1</li>
<li>Line 2</li>
<li>Line 3</li>
<li>Line 4</li>

I understand that if I were to do some facsimile to below:

<li onmouseover="someJsFunction(message 1)">Line 1</li>
<li onmouseover="someJsFunction(message 2)">Line 2</li>
<li onmouseover="someJsFunction(message 3)">Line 3</li>
<li onmouseover="someJsFunction(message 4)">Line 4</li>

My question is what would be a simple way to accomplish this popup text message based upon which line in the list is hovered over. Again, I am assuming a javascript solution is best, but will entertain anything. Thanks in advance.
