The Jump and Search boxes have grayed help text ("Jump" and "Search") until you click them. Works great on Firefox but nothing shows in IE8, so users don't know what they are there for.

Reported by TWiki:Main.IanBowles in TWiki:Support/SID-00949.

The problem is in: pub/TWiki/PatternSkin/pattern.js

Line 62: #jumpFormField needs to be changed to input#jumpFormField

Line 71: #quickSearchBox needs to be changed to input#quickSearchBox

I'm not exactly sure why the other way doesn't work, but that's the fix.

Thank you Travis for providing a fix, very much appreciated. I'll update the PatternSkin accordingly.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2010-09-25

Fixed in SVN trunk and 5.0 branch, TWiki:Plugins.PatternSkin package updated.
