@MarjanVenema That wasn't the point. Unnecessary comment.

This seems sensible. Ultimately both routes are getting the user to register with our site, just a slight variation in data collection between the two. It's not two completely different actions like buying or selling on eBay.

comment Does the content of the HTML5 placeholder attribute affect usability?
I have labels (for screen readers) but they're currently hidden to reduce UI and I've used placeholder text instead. I'm curious as to the best approach though. A lot of the research I've read is pre HTML5 spec etc

The labels can exist but be hidden so still available for screen readers. Something I didn't make clear in my initial question. I've amended.

The Caroline Jarrett article is interesting. It doesn't seem to answer the question of whether having a generic label and a generic placeholder (as oppose to hints) is good/bad. Maybe it's a redundant question though as the placeholder is providing no more value then the label.

With regards to your first point, that's browser specific no? Webkit/Firefox browsers only clear placeholder on input not focus. Opera, however clears placeholder on focus. A valid point though.
