use javascript such as

onFocus=document.getElementById('textboxID').value = '';"

this.value=''; should also work I think.

or simplified to:

<input name="textfield" type="text" value="0" onFocus="this.value=''">

It might be nicer on the user to have:

<input name="textfield" type="text" value="0" onFocus="this.value = (this.value=='0'?'':this.value)">

Another possibility:

<form>
<input type='text' value='0' onFocus='this.select()'>
</form>
