    Hello Alvin,

    The hint example can be modified by injecting a CSS code in to your form.
    Your email textbox's id is #input_19, so the code to inject should look like the following: 


    Doing this will allow you to make the font smaller and align it to the center of the box.

    You could also align it to the right by changing it to text-align:right;

    Below I'm appending the images on how to achieve this and the links to additional CSS information:

    You can also use the following codes if you'd only want to change the hint styling.

    .form-textbox::-webkit-input-placeholder {



    .form-textbox:-moz-placeholder { /* Firefox 18- */



    .form-textbox::-moz-placeholder {  /* Firefox 19+ */



    .form-textbox:-ms-input-placeholder {
