Search Field in Access 2007

I have taken over responsibility for an application where there is a field formatted as follows: @;[Black]"Search"

It looks cool with a looking glass -- but I don't know how this works. Can someone describe this control for me. It's a text box, and there is no code behind it and I'm confused.

Thanks

@;[Black]"Search" should make it black, and add the string "Search" to the end.

It wound up being a transparent control over a regular control which would change a button to the right from a magnifying glass to an X to remove the search filter. Quite cool. Thanks a lot!
