SharePoint 2007, Modify Tooltip Text in SharePoint forms: EditForm.aspx and NewForm.aspx

I have a list in SharePoint that was created awhile back.  The names assigned to some of the columns in the list are no longer relevant.  Due to existing code, the column names cannot be modified to reflect the preferred names.  I was able to change the lables assiciated with these fields within forms NewForm.aspx and EditForm.aspx.  All looks and works just fine except for when the curser lingers in one of these fields, the tooltip that appears contains the underlining (original...no longer relevant) column names.  This is confusing to the user since the name within the lable and the tooltip are different.  I would like a way to either disable the tooltip from displaying or to modify it to display a custom value.  Below is the code from behind the form as it appears in Sharepoint Designer.  I would appreciate some input on this. <SharePoint:FormField runat="server" id="ff11{$Pos}" ControlMode="Edit" FieldName="My_x0020_Field_x0020_Name" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('u',concat('ff11',$Pos),'Value','ValueChanged','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@My_x0020_Field_x0020_Name')}"/> <SharePoint:FieldDescription runat="server" id="ff11description{$Pos}" FieldName="My_x0020_Field_x0020_Name" ControlMode="Edit"/>

Copy of dispForm.aspx and lookup column

Hello, we have created in SPD 2010 a new Dispform. This new dispformuser.aspx is the new default form for viewing list entries. We want to hide some elements with jquery. We are using some lookup columns in our list. When we open an entry in the new form, the lookup-columns looks like <a href="http://s-sharepoint-02.kkrn.local/_layouts/listform.aspx?PageType=4&ListId={1D8EE013-E164-482F-861E-9CACB2EBF6B5}&ID=1&RootFolder=*">Marien-Hospital</a> The form is not customized at the moment, it is only a copy at the moment. Any other colums are ok. Editform and newform seems to be ok, also the lookup columns. Maybe somebody can help us with this behaviour.  thank you Regards Marc
