jQuery Plugin For Clearing Text Field On Click - clearme

clearme is an useful and user-friendly jQuery plugin that clears the text field once on first click and returns the initial value if it loses focus and if field is empty. It is a little similar to html5 input placeholder attribute and compatible with those legacy browsers which don't support html5 like IE7, IE8, etc.
