    Anti aliasing may be fine under certain conditions it were a still image (.jpg, .gif) (not all)
    It's not fine if it's swf content.

    You might want aliased text such as pixel fonts.
    I don't think you want anti-aliased text.

    You may want to use device fonts for your dynamic text
    at which point you would have to stick to standard font types.


    I serious don't think you specifically want anti aliased text.
    Unless of course you intend to keep it all over 16pt

    Embedding the text will make your text look antialiased

    HI!

    Thanks for the replies. Yes, I DO NOT want anti-aliased font BUT.. my client does. I strictly follow aliased stuff and therefore I never tried using Anti Aliasing in Dynamic Text field. I must say I am not good at font options so can you please clearly tell me about one more thing. If/When I embedd a font then does it means that the particular font will be viewable even in those computers which do NOT have that font installed? If not, then, is there anyway to use any unique font (apart from ctrl+b) which will also be displayed in a system that doesn't contains it?

    Thanks!

    if you embedd the font it will appear the same on all computers, whether its dynamic or loaded externally .
    go to font character and chose embed all characters.

    i personaly rekon you can go a bit smaller than 16px. possibly even 12px if you use a decent font. Another trick to get good antialiasing is to use a font color similar to that of the background. i.e grey font on white background looks smoother than black font on white background.
