This one is the best watermark plugin that I found so far http://code.google.com/p/jquery-watermark/

This is how to use:

  1. Download the js file from the above link (Make sure have jquery too)
  2. Add the following css to the site


.watermark  {color: #999 !important;}
  1. Add following java script code to <head>


$(document).ready(function () {
            $.watermark.options.useNative = false;
            $('#txtSearch').watermark('Search tips');

Note: txtSearch is the name of the textbox. UserNative is set to false coz chrome does not display the placeholder attribute correctly if the textbox has the height set.
