    i am trying to do this in flash 5.0, the glow need not be animated just a static outline of the text but should have faded edges, tried gradient but doesn't work as it does not apply uniformly. (

    you can do that in flash:

    type your text. then break apart.

    under:

    transform -> shape

    you can choose:

    expand fill and soften fill edges.

    do this for the for the first layer of text.
    then type your second layer of text, place it on top
    and you have glowing text.

    hope this helps.
