Question Field MACRONOMACRO

I have in the past used a field, MACRONOMACRO "Prompt". It places a prompt in the document i.e., Please click here to enter text. When you click on the prompt text, the string is selected and then the author types the pertinent text and of course replaces the selected text.

Click here to type text.
Click here to type date.
etc.



Does anyone know the field syntax to get a highlighted string of text?

Thanks,
