validating a form, can it have 2 values?
Hey guys, I'm just learning PHP, and I'm trying to validate a form.

Here is a snipit of the form code as an example:
I have the value set as an example of the field, and it disappears when the user clicks the field.

I believe that this prevents the individual from having to re-enter their information if they forgot a field, thus triggering the validation/error message and reloading the page.

Please give me an example of the correct code, as I'm still learning :)
