Add "inline labels" to dijits with textbox representations

It'd be wonderful to be able to have a textbox have a label that appears within the input so long as 1) the box isn't in focus and 2) is empty. For example, say I want you to input a date in 3 text boxes. I could have this:

Date of Birth: Month: [_] Day: [_] Year: []

But that's not nearly as nice as this:

Date of Birth: [_Month] [_Day_], [_Year_]

(Yes, I realize you can use a date picker dijit here, but this is just an example.)

"Enter Search Term" is a common one for this kind of functionality.

Suggestion: name the property hint, e.g.:

<input type="text" dojoType="dijit.form.TextBox" name="search" hint="Search this site">
