I would like to add further description for certain words or subquestions. The descriptions should show as a little call out box when the mouse hovers on the word and it should disappear once the mouse is moved away. I used the JavaScript command onmouseover and onmouseout. But it didn't work correctly. I am wondering if anyone knows how to do that in LS, or if there is no easy way, what kind of JavaScript Code would make it work?

Thank you in advance!

Just a thought, but have you tried an inline link with an alt and a title:

example:
This is a <a href="#" alt="Survey help goes here" title="Survey help goes here">survey</a>

helper trick can do the job, but think we can use an image with title too.
<img src="{TEMPLATEURL}/myhelp.png" alt="Help text here" />

And after use some tooltip jquery sytem.

(no link, no click ;) )

To avoid the click, you can also use a <span> element with a title:
<span class="tip" title="Some tip text goes here">This is a tooltip span</span>

And then maybe style the tips a bit in template.css:
span.tip {
	color: #0000FF;
	cursor: help;
}

Then as Denis points out, you can use the qTip plugin shipped with LS:

1) Add this to startpage.pstpl right after {TEMPLATEJS}:
<script src="/scripts/jquery/jquery.qtip.js" type="text/javascript">
2) Add something like this to the end of template.js:
$(document).ready(function() {
	$('span.tip').qtip({
		position: {
			corner: {
			target: 'topMiddle',
			tooltip: 'bottomLeft'
			}
		}
	});
});

Oops, small mistake on the qTip part - add this to startpage.pstpl right after {TEMPLATEJS}:
<script src="/scripts/jquery/jquery.qtip.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
