Showing Alternate text for drop down values on mouseover event

I have a drop down in which I show Employee name. But due to the fact that Employee name may duplicate, I want to show additional employee info with that drop down. But I can't append it in the drop down because it will increase the size of drop down.       Instead of that I want to show Additional info for employee as a alternative text (Just like we use ALT attribute for images) but "alt" does not work for dropdowns. Is there any way to show alternate text on mouseover event of drop downs? (I have a drop-down menu on my site and i want to make it so that when users hover over a drop-down menu item, alt text is displayed.) Please Help.

    I think the problem you are going to run into finding out what item the mouse is over. The best you might be able to do is come up with some coordinates from the event arguments.
