Topic: specifying fonts for widget annotations

I am new to the PDF standard and need some help...
I am working with widget annotations [form fields]. I set the font for the annotations in the DA key as specified in the PDF standard [1.5]. I understand that the font name needs to be a PostScript font-name and this font must be present in the Resource dictionary. Since I dont understand how embedding of fonts works very well, I simply mention the font name in the DA key [eg: /DA(/Chicago ......)]. Now this works just fine and Adobe Pro 6 displays the annotation with the specified font. However, for fonts which have spaces in their names, this does not work and Adobe fails to display the annotation properly.
Can somebody please throw some light on this and show me how to specify fonts, which have spaces in their names, in the DA key.
Thanks in advance,
