autoFill input doesn't work with Google Chrome

I use the JavaScript function below to have a default text on my input field, but it doesn't work with Google Chrome.

I just realize that I use the version 1.3.2, I didn't test the function with the latest version.

function autoFill(id, v){

	$(id).css({ color: "#b2adad" }).attr({ value: v }).focus(function(){


			$(this).val("").css({ color: "#333" });




			$(this).css({ color: "#b2adad" }).val(v);

You can see and example at

The input field is "Enter Suburb or Postcode" in that page.

Thanks for the report, but 1.3.2 is over two years old. If you use the latest version of jQuery and this is still a problem and you can provide a reduction showing only the call that fails, please feel free to do so.

Also, you may want to learn about the html5 placeholder property.
