More on how to display the definitions in popup windows in the PDF:

You can create rollover popups manually in Acrobat - even though
it may be impractical if the PDF has to be recreated frequently or
if you have many activating areas/popups.

The following article by Teri Patrick, originally published in Adobe
Magazine, has a step-by-step instructions (valid for Acrobat 4 and 5
as well):
"PDFs Talk Back: How to Create Interactive Forms in Acrobat Exchange 3.0"

With Acrobat JavaScript, introduced in Acrobat 4 and significantly
enhanced in Acrobat 5, there are additional ways to handle popups,
providing more power/controls.

The demo I pointed to in my previous message was authored entirely
in FrameMaker and distilled with no post-conversion operations
in Acrobat, relying on the TimeSavers+Form Assistant add-on.
