Problem setting an RTF field in Acrobat 7

I copied this code from page 597 of the Acrobat 7 Javascript manual. It works in Acrobat 6, but not in Acrobat 7. Any ideas? Sample PDF attached.

this.resetForm(["myRichField"]); // I added this line, which was required in 6 if the button in my PDF was clicked twice
var f = this.getField("myRichField");
// need an array to hold the span objects
var spans = new Array();
// each span object is an object, so we must create one
spans[0] = new Object();
spans[0].alignment = "center";
spans[0].text = "The answer is x";
spans[1] = new Object();
spans[1].text = "2/3";
spans[1].superscript = true;
spans[2] = new Object();
spans[2].superscript = false;
spans[2].text = ". ";
spans[3] = new Object();
spans[3].underline = true;
spans[3].text = "Did you get it right?";
spans[3].fontStyle = "italic";
spans[3].textColor =;
f.richValue = spans;
