Post How to autoreplace text in a Word template?

An example of what I’m trying to ask:
When I go to a page that has an input form, there may be a prompt for information in the input box. When I place the mouse there with a left-click, the prompt disappears and I can enter as prompted (name, address, whatever). How do I code for this 'prompt'?



My specific need:
Outside of 'forms', how does a Word template present the same type of 'prompt' (e.g., for an address, ‘123 Main Street’) such that when I click on that location on the Word document, the prompt (‘123 Main Street’) disappears and my entry, as I begin typing, is formatted in the same style as the prompt. How does one code a Word template to achieve this effect?

This question pertains strictly to MS Word, and I am using Word 2003. Thank you for any help and suggestions I might use in creating my own template for personal use.
