Mac OS X Preview application and phantom blank form fields

I created a "employment application form" for my company in Acrobat. Occasionally our HR department will get a returned application form with the "phantom blank form fields". The information is there but invisible. I used the export form data and have been able to recover the data and make a viewable .pdf again but I would like to see if any one else has been encountering problems like this and what the solution may be.


In this thread Brian points out that it's likely that folks are using the Mac OS X Preview rather than Reader to fill in the form (thought for a long time that it was some sort of platform issue - the Mac thing makes perfect sense). Is there a way that I could possibly avert this problem when creating and distributing the document out of Acrobat?
