<h2>Input Hint</h2>
Display input hints to users within a text input and remove them automatically
on focus/form submission. The hint text for each input can be supplied by
assigning it to the standard XHTML <code>title</code> attribute, or by supplying
a jQuery selector that, when evaluated in the context of some input element
(e.g. <code>$(selector, inputElement)</code>), matches an auxiliary element
containing the hint text.
<p>Examples of both methods are given below:</p>
<div class='caption'>Example using <code>title</code> attribute:</div>
&lt;input type='text' name='forename' hint='Forename' /&gt;
<form method='post' id='test-form-1'>
<input type='text' title='Forename' name='forename' /><br/>
<input type='text' title='Surname' name='surname' />
<input type='submit' value='Submit' />
<div class='caption'>Example using auxiliary element:</div>
&lt;input type='text' name='forename' /&gt;
&lt;kbd&gt;Enter your forename here&lt;/kbd&gt;
$('input').inputHint({using: '+kbd'});</pre>
<form method='post' id='test-form-2'>
<input type='text' name='forename' /> <kbd>Enter your forename here</kbd><br/>
<input type='text' name='surname' /> <kbd>Enter your surname here</kbd>
<input type='submit' value='Submit' />
(obviously you'd hide the <code>&lt;kbd/&gt;</code> elements in real usage)
