    Change Font size - extr. txt

    Greetings fellow Flashers,

    I'm working on a external txt file that is loaded into the swf. (FLASH MX) I can change the color and add links to HTML pages and to swf frames, but I don't know how I can change the font size. Bold and underline is just as a html, but somehow font size won't work.

    Is there somebody who can help me?

    No, not the font, but the font size. I want to make some text bigger than the rest. In Go-live it's something like: <font +3> blabla</font> but it won't work. How can I make a text bigger using HTML?

    Greet,

    <A HREF="http://www.-your-link-here.com"></A HREF> Creates a hyperlink
    <B></B> Bold text
    <I></I> Italic text
    <U></U> Underlined Text
    <FONT COLOR="#397DCE"></FONT> Changes the font color
    <FONT SIZE="18"></FONT> Changes the font size
    <FONT FACE="Arial"></FONT> Changes the font style
    <BR> Creates a line break

    if it's an external source you just have to put the text between the codes

    dont think so, if you just publish to SWF and HTML, then view the html page it should be done, i dont think it has to go online.
