HTML5 Placeholder support for non compliant browsers using jQuery.

This plugin adds support for the placeholder attribute in HTML5 form elements to browsers that don't natively support it.

Usage:

Just include the jquery.html-placeholder-shim.js script into your document head like so:

<head>
  <script type='text/javascript' src='jquery.js'></script>
  <script type='text/javascript' src='jquery/html5-placeholder-shim.js'></script>
</head>

The script will automatically execute itself on the $(document).ready event.

HTML5 placeholder Example:

<input type="search" placeholder="search the internets" name="query" />
