Best solution for providing contextual information to the user.

Within the app i wish to provide  information within the context of individual layouts or specific fields. For example there could be a small info button next to a question of a more complex nature where some additional information would be useful to the user. What would be my best strategy to achieve this given the following:

Tool tips although useful would not suffice.

If the information was in a table, it may not be related.

It would be great if the Info table, if that is the way to go, could do double duty as a general information source with its own layout.

My current idea is  to build a table with the fields : infoID, Tag, Information. The button script on the user layout would open a new window and go to the pertinent information field based on ID. Hopefully this would work but  some reassurance on the approach would be welcome.
