Sorry Martin, Chris is talking about an Adobe product, not about the
PDF reference.  That are two completely different things, see:


Thanh spent an enormous amount of time to make pdfTeX work with Adobe
software.  It is obviously not sufficient to read the PDF reference.

I have Acrobat Reader 7 for Linux and it is quite annoying that there
is a cursor blinking all the time, even in fullscreen mode, which
renders this program useless for presentations.  Can you tell me where
this is described in the PDF reference?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
