Drupal 7 notes: html5 placeholder text

More specifically

<p>Fairly straightforward. Mostly here as a reminder for how to do <a href="">webforms</a&gt; (example has a theoretical nid of 1 and a theoretical form field called "message" and the "submitted" part stymied me for a bit).</p>

<blockquote><?php function mytheme_form_webform_client_form_1_alter(&$form, &$form_state, $form_id) {
$form['submitted']['message']['#attributes']['placeholder'] = t('Type your message here...');
} ?></blockquote>

Could also use a switch in <code>hook_form_alter()</code>. One of these days I'll think about finding out if there's any difference performance-wise in using a big switch with many form alterations or several smaller <code>hook_form_form_id_alters</code>.

Hey Bek, I sent you an email with a Drupal question.  Are you not using the Gmail addy any more?

<p>I think I sent it the Saturday before last (can't figure out where Thunderbird is storing my sent emails to double check).</p><p>Short version: can you set up test sites using the same Drupal database or will it complete FUBAR the public site?  Setting up a home server has not been a fun project and keeps going wrong.  Downloading copies of the databases also always goes wrong.  So my idea was to put the sandbox sites online in their own subdomains.</p>

How many I've got isn't an issue.  Apparantly I pay for an infinite set of both subdomains and databases.  Hopefully, if I copy a database on the same server, it won't give me crap about too big to download or upload.  Thanks.
