Add font awesome icons as placeholder text in inputs

An old one i found on codepen, works with only the old version of font awesome i think. Not tested on the later versions.


<link href="//" rel="stylesheet">

<textarea placeholder='&#xf075; Add Comment'></textarea>


<input type='text' placeholder='&#xf02b; Some Input Text'></input>


textarea, input {
	font-family: FontAwesome, "Open Sans", Verdana, sans-serif;
    font-style: normal;
    font-weight: normal;
    text-decoration: inherit;

When i was a little kid, I was really scared of the dark. But then I came to understand, dark just means the absence of photons in the visible wavelength -- 400 to 700 nanometers. Then i thought, well, its really silly to be afraid of a lack of photons. Then i wasn't afraid of the dark anymore after that.
