    Suppose you have two input fields with instance names tf_input1 and tf_input2, you could use the following code:
    code:

    INPUTNOTSETMESSAGE = "<CLICK HERE TO ENTER TEXT>";
    tf_input1.onSetFocus = formSetFocus;
    function formSetFocus(oldFocus) {
    if (this.text == INPUTNOTSETMESSAGE) {
    this.text = "";
    }
    }
    function formKillFocus(newFocus) {
    if (this.text == "") {
    this.text = INPUTNOTSETMESSAGE;
    }
    }
    tf_input1.onSetFocus = formSetFocus;
    tf_input1.onKillFocus = formKillFocus;
    tf_input1.onKillFocus();
    tf_input2.onSetFocus = formSetFocus;
    tf_input2.onKillFocus = formKillFocus;
    tf_input2.onKillFocus();


    (Two fields only necessary to show it working properly!)
