So here's what I have on my page: a search field that's not entirely obviously a search field except that it has a "go" button next to it. To make it easier on the user in identifying its purpose, I've added the text "search our site" inside the field as a "value" for the input tag.
However, when a user clicks into that field, before they can type their query, they have to highlight and delete the "search our site" text.
I feel like I've seen ways around this, so that once you click in, the text that was in the field goes away, but can't seem to find *anything* online.
Are my Google skills failing me?
Or does this capability not exist?
Or does it exist, but nobody's asked about it before?
Thanks in advance for any help,
