JQuery Inplace editing with autocomplete option

Two common Ajax features that go hand-in-hand are "In-place editing" and "autocomplete". Although, many "Javascript" or "Ajax" frameworks provide functions or plugins for "in-place editing" and "autocomplete", pulling them together can be messy and difficult. Hence, I have modified and extended two such JQuery plugins (Inplace editing and autocomplete) to support both in one function call. By using this single function, you can get set an editable input box to show autocomplete options. Further, I have extended autocomplete script to have provision for specifying input separator.
