Comment (by afercia):

 Please consider placeholder text is not a substitute for labels. Though
 they're often (mistakenly) used to provide a "visual" feedback, their
 purpose should be to give an hint about the type of data to enter.

 From an accessibility point of view, placeholder text should never repeat
 the same information already provided with the label. References:
