Where is this coming from, a form? I am not sure why you are wanting to use jQuery for this rather than, oh editing the name or description of the field or editing the form in SPD. Can you elaborate? – Ryan Jun 20 '11 at 16:31
SPD might not be an option (based on goverance) and he has to result to a CEWP change. – Eric Alexander Jun 20 '11 at 16:36
It is coming the List Form (description of the site column) and do not want to edit the form itself instead of that would like to use any kind of script to do it... – Karthikeyan Jun 20 '11 at 16:37
Why don't you want to just change the field description in List Settings? – Ryan Jun 20 '11 at 16:44
I need to display a hyper link instead of the normal text description.. – Karthikeyan Jun 20 '11 at 17:13
