    dynamic pixel fonts or no?

    Go to this link: http://www.marcustjean.com/msj.cfm
    and click the POSITIONS link.

    They have a scrolling text box with multi formatted text (bold, resized, etc.) The gray (small) font looks like one of the FFF fonts - maybe Hero?

    What ar they doing here to reformat this text? Or is it not a pixel font at all? I can't imagine that this is not populated dynamically...

    Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?

    I just got done experimenting with swishmax.

    I could html format text with a dynamic text block.
    and use the embed font of my choosing.

    Its not an FFF font. The small text is verdana at size 10. The text feild is a dynamic text field with "render text as HTML" selected so then you can format different parts of the text.
    In the below attachment you will see that i've achieved the effect in flash mx
