jQuery Overlabel 1.2.0

A jQuery plugin to implement over labels (placeholders) for form fields, taking the label for a form field and moving it inside the input field itself
Not to blend in with other text entered in the field, the label text is shown faded or in a dim color.

When the user puts focus on the input, the label will be hidden.

When the input is blurred and has no value, the label will be shown again.

jQuery Overlabel is an ancient jQuery plugin, from the days when the HTML 5 standard and HTML 5 placeholder attribute weren't even thought of.

For this reason, now, when HTML 5 is supported in most all major browsers, jQuery Overlabel can be used as a fallback mechanism to support this feature in browsers that natively don't.

An example is included with the plugin package.
