    Your form's width is 1000px, while your website's main content division is set to 940px, thus the hover text gets cut off. Solution to this is change your form's width to 940px, so that the form fits well on your site.

    I went ahead and applied the necessary changes to your form. Your embedded form looks perfectly fine now on my end. Please check to confirm if you see the same results as I do.

    Let me know if I can be of further help. Thanks.

    Thanks alot!! Very helpful, great support! Now is there any way to get the hover text closer to too each field?

    I really wish there was some sort of css dictionary for developers.

    Try this CSS fix:

    .form-description {


    Increase the value to make the hover text closer to the form fields.

    To inject that css code onto your form:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Preferences Form button
    3.  Choose Form Styles tab
    4.  Copy and paste the css code in the Inject Custom CSS textarea


    Let me know how this works for you.

    As for your request of a CSS dictionary, you may want to download Firebug add-on for Firefox. It will definitely help you in figuring out which css selectors affect which page element.
