W3C Bug Description:

validator.w3.org error is described as: "Attribute placeholder is only allowed
when the input type is e-mail, number, password, search, tel, text, or url."

According to World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) HTML5 Standards: Attribute
"placeholder" can be used with input type "email" (not "e-mail" as the W3C
validator suggests). However, this page does validate at validator.nu
