Fancy placeholder

I've been seeing an effect that I like. On a text input a placeholder text changes it's size and the placeholder text slides to the top Left corner of the input field and the user can enter the text with the original placeholder text as a reminder what they are asking for. I think this can be done in FD but I've never done any of this type of work yet.

The other example I have seen is that the placeholder text is moved outside of the text input still with a sliding and font size change either onfocus or onclick events.

I'm looking for some advice if this a plausible using FD. I've included the two image states for clarity.

Those are done with a span that holds the place holder text. The position of the span is then altered.
Not sure about FD capability since you may need some custom css so it may need to be done after export. We don't have access to the head of the page.:|

It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

And here is an example, made in a html element with the code from that fiddle Eric posted. I had to change some of values, a bit of a puzzle, but it works.

That's the right idea. I'll go play with it and see how it looks on other machines.
