One thing I can never seem to find is a cool jQuery plugin for creating placeholders on input fields that persist after focus, and are totally style-able. Now, I know what youíre thinkingÖ ďWhy not just use HTML5?Ē Well, because itís super lame as-is. Nuff said. iCloud.com actually has an awesome working sample of what Iím talking about, and now, so do I.
Iíve whipped together my first jQuery plugin (it mimics the same functionality as iCloud), and with some time to kill during a flight back to the grand olí Salt Lake State, I made a cool working copy.
