The problem with this is you have to clic somewhere to get this alert
popped up. After you clic "Accept" you have to place a "setFocus"
action in order to go to the field/place you want. If not, it'll stay
in the "minifield" (or whatever activates it).
I say the problem because only Acrobat 4.05 accepts the setFocus
Action. Older viewers will raise a Java error.
You could do a field and treat it as a help screen. It should change
it's message depending on the field accessed. This is good but if your
page exceeds the screen, the user will loose visually this "help
screen". I've solved this with horizontal forms that fit the screen.
In Acrojs.pdf (Acroforms help) you'll find more info on the subject
