sure, why not? The JavaScript used in Acrobat is based on the
JavaScript 1.2 Core, and has therefore quite a bit of core JavaScript
functionality, particularly when it comes to text manipulation.
Building up a string is no big deal either, and you can even put it
into its own hidden field, in order to make it easier to handle.

Hope, this can help.
