your recent committed changeset doesn't look very good for me, see:


a) it is too unobtrusive, I first thought assistants are broken before I 
finally spotted that

b) it's not clear that is a tooltip or something context sensitive, it's 
placed at the bottom center and looks like it belongs to the surrounding like 
a tab title, but not do the editor.

c) it does not use the tooltip style (that would be blue for me). Fixing this 
would probably fix b) as well.

d) missing margin/padding on the left

e) I would change the text to:

Declare "int a" as: 0 - local | 1 - public | 2 - private | 3 - protected | 0 -  

it will always be an in, so no need to repeat that (esp. for fully qualified 
types which might get long).

Can you improve that?
