My website uses a simple cdosys file to let visitors send email. Here's the problem... In the Email field I put the word "optional" and CSS styled it gray, plus a JavaScript deletes that word if they click in the field. I have the same setup in one of the two textarea fields.

If the user doesn't click the field and sends me email, I get the default text for both fields, and the second one is a bit lengthy.

Is there a way in cdosys to have it do a text-string match and delete what gets sent to the mail server if it's the default form field text?
