Use

HTML:

<p>
  <label for="field_id">Label Text</label><br />
  <input type="text" name="field_id" value=""
	id="field_id">
</p>

CSS:
More CSS is needed to position the label nicely over the input or text area element, but since it all depends on how you have styled those elements, only the bare-bones are listed here. Keep in mind any block element can surround the label and input field. <p> is used as an example.

form p { position:relative }
label  { position:absolute; top:0; left:0}

Javascript:

$(document).ready(function(){
  $("label").inFieldLabels();
});

Options

Two options can be passed along with the method or set ahead of time for all inFieldLabel controls.

To set them ahead of time, use the following syntax:

$.inFieldLabels.defaultOptions.optionName = "";

To pass them at call time, use the following syntax:

$("label").inFieldLabels({ optionName:value });

fadeOpacity: Value between 0.1 and 1.0.
When a field is focussed, its label is animated to this opacity. Defaults to 0.5

fadeDuration: Time in milliseconds
When an animation occurs, it uses this setting to determine duration. Defaults to 300
