grayhints – Produce 'gray hints' to a variable text field

The pack­age pro­vides JavaScript code snip­pets to cre­ate 'gray hints'. Gray hints, as the au­thor terms them, are text that ap­pears ini­tially in a text field that gives a short hint as to what the con­tents of the text field should be. For ex­am­ple, a text field might con­tain the hint 'First Name', or a date field might read 'yyyy/mm/dd'. As soon as the field comes into fo­cus, the hint dis­ap­pears. It reap­pears when the field is blurred and the user did not en­ter any text into the field.

The pack­age works for dvips/Dis­tiller, pdf, Lua, and XeLaTeX.
