Not tricky enough, or, it's just implicit:  add the fact that any 
characters that the user types are shown in the text field.  Using your 
example, starting with "fo":  if the user types an 'o', the text field 
becomes "foo" followed by a blinking cursor.  Also, left and right 
arrows move among the characters in the text field.  Yet another also, 
shift+left/right arrows select characters in the text field.

Yours in explicitness,
