Steps to reproduce
innerHTML as well as innerText should not contain the placeholder’s value and therefore should be empty.
outerHTML should have an empty value (like <textarea placeholder="foo"></textarea> and NOT <textarea placeholder="foo">foo</textarea>)

This has been fixed in EdgeHTML.
See my comment:
IE 11 still treats placeholder value as innerText. Please let me know if you are going to fix this issue anytime soon.
Or do we need to find a workaround for simple attribute such as placeholder !!!
@shivang b. IE 11 will only receive security updates. Nothing more. This will not be fixed anymore. (As far as I know)
