Using jQuery, how can I reset a form?  I can do this using traditional JavaScript but I do not know how to do it with jQuery.  Please test the example below:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Demo</title>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {
 $('#abc').val('');
 $('#xyz').val('555');

 $('p a#reset1').click(function() {
  document.getElementById('myform').reset();
 });
 $('p a#reset2').click(function() {
  $('#myform').reset();
 });

});

</script>
</head>
<body>

<form action="/" method="get" id="myform">
<input name="abc" type="text" value="Hello" id="abc" />
<input name="xyz" type="text" value="" id="xyz" />
</form>

<p><a href="#" id="reset1">Reset Form using JavaScript</a></p>
<p><a href="#" id="reset2">Reset Form using jQuery</a></p>

</body>
</html>
