Description of Problem:

Search box in global header is populated with text "enter search term" that
remains when user clicks in the box.  The user then has to manually delete this
pre-entered text before entering a search term.

The same applies to the "Your email" box for the "Newsletters" section in the
center of the page.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

go to www.redhat.com
click in the SEARCH RED HAT:  box
or the newsletters/email box.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:

Pre-populated text remains in the input and must be deleted by the user.

Expected Results:

would be nice if the pre-populated text were to be erased when the user clicked
in the <INPUT>

accomplished by adding a little javascript to the INPUT tag for these text inputs:
or, since that would erase the text everytime the user clicked out and clicked
back into the input box, you could use something like

onfocus="if(this.value == 'enter search term') { this.value='';}"
