Broken Placeholder text on BlackBerry Curve 9300 v6.0

Placeholder text appears to be broken. Using the following HTML, if you first select the user name field (don't type anything) and then select the password (and again don't type anything), and then select the user name field again, the placeholder text doesn't disappear. Actually, the placeholder text is broken in both fields from this point onwards.


I'm using a BlackBerry Curve 9300 - 6.0 Bundle 2647 (v6.0.0.600, Platform


	<title>Test Placeholder Text</title>
    <input type="text" name="name" placeholder="User name" />
    <input type="password" name="password" placeholder="Password" />



Is this a know bug or am I missing something?






PS works fine on iOS, Android and on Desktop Browsers.
