        <apex:inputField value="{!contact.lastname}" html-placeholder="Enter Your Last Name"/>

You can still use the following tag I believe

  • @Micheal Gill: It gives same...I wanna display in red color Commented Nov 29, 2014 at 10:18
  • Can you not wrap it in a div or something and apply some CSS style Commented Nov 29, 2014 at 13:06

set strandardStylesheets to true or remove it. that will give you desired result.

<apex:page standardController="Contact" standardStylesheets="true" showHeader="false"  >
