Google Analytics

One of the strengths of the Istarel Workshop Application Framework is that common tasks can be performed in several different ways. Consider Google Analytics, a near ubiquitous tool for tracking website visitor data.

Javascript Field Placeholders

One standard feature on most blogs (and lots of other places, of course) is a search widget. I wanted to make sure that its functionality was obvious without having to resort to a label sitting on top of it (or next to it). So, I experimented with a little Javascript to create some placeholder text to make clear what purpose the field served. Once the user clicks in the field, I also want the placeholder text to go away (and then return when the user leaves the field if it is empty).
