      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Documentation site, generated by the by javadoc tool, has a Search field, in wich the placeholder ("Search") is not a real placeholder, and this causes issues.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Generate documentation site and see the "Search" field. It behaves strangely. As an example, clear and start typing "SearchTerm".

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Field must be contain "SearchTerm". A real HTML placeholder should be used.
      ACTUAL -
      The field will be erased, and finally contains only "Term".

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Type "Term" first, then type "Search" before it. However, no (easy) way to search for "Search".

      FREQUENCY : always
