Hello,

Please take a look at this link:

https://id.avast.com/login?target=https%3A%2F%2Fmy.avast.com%3A443%2F

Notice the legends "Email Address" and "Password" on the textfields. Then the textfields get focus, the legend dissapears.

I asume this is CSS? If so, how can I do that, for an email address and password?

Thanks!

This is for links

a:link {color:#FF0000;}      /* unvisited link */
a:visited {color:#00FF00;}  /* visited link */
a:hover {color:#FF00FF;}  /* mouse over link */
a:active {color:#0000FF;}  /* selected link */

Open in new window



Something similar should work for textbox
specifically the focus command

input:focus
{ 
background-color:yellow;
}

Open in new window

This is not CSS, it is the HTML5 placeholder attribute being displayed in the inputs. In your sample site, the first textbox contains "Email address" as shown below:
<input name="username" placeholder="Email address"/>

Open in new window


If you need the same behaviour use  placeholder attribute  in your inputs. For more info check:
