When using Pentadactyl in XP, I found the hints are too small to distinct. It doesn’t happen when I run Ubuntu. Anyway, I googled and figured it out. Here I think I should take a note, in case my memories don’t serve me some day. Actually Pentadactyl do leaves a lot of options, but sometimes I just don’t know how to change them.

border-style: solid; padding: 0px 1px 0px 1px;
And, don’t forget to write it to your RC file.
