Description

[Display(Prompt = "Enter your description here")]
public virtual string Description

{ get; set; }

Add the code above to any content type. Edit it and notice that "Enter your description here" is shown as placeholder text. Awesome!

Change the property to a text area, like this:

[UIHint(UIHint.Textarea)]
[Display(Prompt = "Enter your description here")]
public virtual string Description { get; set; }

Go back to edit and notice that the placeholder text is not shown any more.
