Make background of a placeholder transparent

Make background of a placeholder transparent, anyone?

http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_background-color.asp

here: …

  • Your Name?
  • … tried various ways to define background-color: transparent through css & html (class, type etc) . Purpose: request form similar to the task or at least invisible placeholder white boxes.

    <li> Your Name?<input type="text" placeholder="Insert your Name"> </li>

    I moved your post to a new thread.

    I cleaned up your code.
    You need to use triple backticks to post code to the forum.
    See this post for details.

    The solution is simple: use of square brackets in SCC
    \\input[type=“text”]
    {
    background: transparent;
    border: none;
    }\\

    Thanks for the signs
