default values in type="text"

Hi everyone:

says that I need to have default text in type="text" input areas.
Bobby.cast.org says I need to have this text to be AAA Accessible. I
understand that this might be necessary for BUTTON and TEXTAREA
elements...but I've never heard of this problem for INPUT (where the type
isn't button or image).

Does anyone know what screen readers/browsers /require/ type="text" to have
a default value set?
