HTML Textarea issue

Hello,

I wanna to do one thing with textarea on my website. I want to put some default text like "add your message here" and when I gonna click on that field that text should disappear and give me ability to type.

How to do this without any PHP or JS?

This can be achieved my monitoring the focus/blur events. The code below is condensed but an be broken out into a function if you wanted to do something more advanced.

Code:
<textarea id='txtArea' onFocus="if(this.value == 'Enter Text') {this.value = '';}" onBlur="if (this.value == '') {this.value = 'Enter Text';}" >Enter Text</textarea>
