10. Simple Text Box Label Over (undergoing a little bit of maintenance, link will be back soon)

From time-to-time our sites have used labels that ‘float’ over their text input box. To make things easier for ourselves, we’ve come up with a little jQuery plugin to do just that.

You can see a working example on this website; the ‘Search our blog’ text box at the top right of the blog and the ‘Keep up to Date.’ sign-up box on the homepage both use this plugin.
