In-Field Labels jQuery Plugin is a simple plugin that turns properly formatted HTML forms into forms with in-field label support. Labels fade when the field is focussed and disappear when text entry begins. Clearing a field and leaving brings back the label.
There are some major benefits. The input element or textarea never really has content, so validation can proceed without first checking for the field value. It takes one line of jQuery code to implement. And its compatible with all modern browsers (And even IE6, the “not-so-modern” browser).
