I want to display Default text in </h:inputText>. Which gives idea about "What to input in textbox".

But the problem is I don't want to use value attribute of </h:inputText> tag. Since I am using validation on these textboxes.
Is there any other way to set Defult Text using CSS or JavaScirpt or JQuery or Third Party Tool available.

Please help me out.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
