There are many ways to go with this, especially if you have Acrobat 5.0 and
your users all have Reader 5.0. For example you can change the field rect to
encompass a one-square-pixel area. (That will certainly hide the text!) You
can keep your text in a doc-level string global and blast it into a text
field whenever you want. You can store hidden text on an extra page and
control how the user gets to that page. You can put the hidden text in a
large FreeText annotation and toggle the opacity to zero. There are many
ways to handle hidden text; you just have to think about it.
