Demo HTML5 Placeholder Download Demo Zip Old School Javascript Way Before we had the placeholder attribute, we relied on Javascript to fake the placeholder text. jQuery Placeholder Text (Demo) Now with HTML5 placeholder, it is more semantic to use placeholder than value attribute. Modernizr is used here to check if placeholder is supported. To use this on your site, download a copy of Modernizr and jQuery and paste the following code any where in your html page (be sure the jquery.js and modernizr.js file is in correct path).

HTML5 Presentation In March 1936, an unusual confluence of forces occurred in Santa Clara County. A long cold winter delayed the blossoming of the millions of cherry, apricot, peach, and prune plum trees covering hundreds of square miles of the Valley floor.

It roared off the Pacific Ocean, through the nearly uninhabited passes of the Santa Cruz Mountains and then, flattening out, poured down into the great alluvial plains of the Valley. This perfumed blizzard hit Stevens Creek Boulevard, a two-lane road with a streetcar line down its center, that was the main road in the West Valley.
