This would apply to editboxes and dropdown lists. Similar to tooltip property, allow ghost text to be entered as a property (also dynamic) to display text in a field that would not affect the value of the field and would disappear when the user starts entering a value into the field. This type of behavior is common on web pages, so it would be nice to have this in a c/s environment as well. If the user cleared out the field, the ghost text would reappear. Using this feature should not affect $formmod if the user hasn\'t typed anything in the field.

Use Case

When filling out a form with first name, middle name, and last name field -- instead of having labels, the ghost text could have first name in the field so the user would know to enter their first name in that field.
