Summary description: Produce 'gray hints' to a variable text field

Announcement text:

This package provides JavaScript code snippets to create 'gray hints'.
Gray hints, as I term them, are text that appears initially in a text
field that gives a short hint as to what the contents of the text field
should be; for example, a text field might contain the hint 'First
Name', or a date field might read 'yyyy/mm/dd'. As soon as the field
comes into focus, the hint disappears. It reappears when the field is
blurred and the user did not enter any text into the field.

Package works for dvips/Distiller, pdflatex, lualatex, and xelatex.
