How to absolutely position text fields

  1. How would I go about creating something like this?

    I really want to like this product but I'm not really sure why layout is so complicated. Seems like there's a lot of unnecessary markup that's preventing the layout pictured in the link above. There has to be a better way then what I'm currently trying to do with css and absolute positioning on the fields.

    There are no trials for this service and I'm finding this is far more complicated than had I written this form myself, including the ajax / backend, etc? Sorry to be so negative, I'm just a little surprised and frustrated by the lack of info or examples for this kind of thing though maybe I just haven't found it yet.

    You can use a placeholder plugin to replace the standard labels with placeholders that are inside the fields, here are links to two plugins over on the WordPress plugin repository
