Placeholder text and validation (2 posts)

    When I use any placeholder text in a generic text field my validation doesn't go off. Presumably because the validator is seeing the placeholder text and taking it as a value and thus believing the field to be filled out.

    This seems completely bonkers to me? Am I missing something or?

    Any way around this other than having the labels separately ?

    Thanks, Anna.

    See http://www.wufoo.com/html5/attributes/01-placeholder.html for info on how placeholder is intended to work.
