    After many hours of wondering, then solving the "small fonts" issue by reading the appropriate forum, I'm still puzzled;
    Using a 'regular' font like Verdana, the text reacts to its containers _alpha value.
    But when I use _sans, it will not fade down.
    Why is this, or am I missing something?

    if i understand correctly, then your problem could be solved by just turning the text into a symbol? or am I way off? <---very likely

    I turned the text into a mc.
    Tested with

    onclipevent (enterframe){
    this._alpha=50;
    }

    works fine with arial
    does not work with _sans

    yup .... the non anti-aliased fonts don't behave the same way as embedded fonts. If you want to do effects of type it has to be on type that's embedded.
