How do you create text for a search field that disappears when a user clicks it? Like... Have the text "eg. Home Remodel", then user click the field and it disappears...

Javascript is the only way?

I'd say that Javascript is the only way to go on this one. Try something like this.

<input value="default_value" onfocus="if (this.value == 'default_value') this.value = '';" />
