Topic: list box font looks awful when clicking

I have a listbox with long titles of documents in it. It looks good on Windows. However, when I was testing it on Mac Acrobat 5 & Acrobat Reader 5, not only some of the titles disapper (show as blank), but also all the fonts turn into bold face, making it look awful & hard to read when I click inside the listbox to select a title. If I click outside of listbox, then it returns to normal.
I'm using Helvetica font size 12. I also tried with Arial, but still have the same problem.
I think this is rather Mac Acrobat problem, not displaying the form's font correctly and sometimes making the text disappear ???
Does anybody have an idea how to fix the problems? Thanks!
