Default Text box in a Word template

I want to insert a text box from the forms toolbar into a template (.dot)
file. When I do this, I unprotect my document and add the text field. Then I
protect the document again.
This is OK execept there is nothing to indicate to the user what to type
into that field; it is just blank until the user clicks there.
I would like to provide the user with some indication of what to type in
the field-- for example [enter date here]. Once he type there the message
should get replaced with what he types.
Any ideas?
