Add placeholder patterns for form fields
|Reported by:||zbraniecki@…||Owned by:||anybody|
Many form widgets need a placeholder pattern, examples:
- Date field "dd/mm/yyyy"
- Time field "--:-- --"
- Credit card CCV field
- Credit card month/year fields "mm/yy"
Those fields should be localized and should not use english-driven letter patterns like "yyyy" to indicate 4 digit year.
For examples of the design where such placeholders would be useful see: https://mozilla.invisionapp.com/share/GU7VBIB4D#/screens/171580933
It would be great to unify how we display those placeholders across systems to increase the ability of the user to recognize the meaning of the placeholder and reduce inconsistency between apps/systems.
CLDR seems like a perfect place to standardize those placeholder patterns for form fields accross systems.
