    HTML formatting dynamic scrolling text

    I made an attempt to HTML format my dynamic text. The only formatting that seemed to work for me was font color tags. The bold html tags did not work. I read that if there isn't a bold font available for this font family embedded in the swf file it will appear. In fact the text between the bold font tags dissapears.

    Does anybody know more about formatting the scrollable text and is there a way to format the text the way CSS style sheets do? The formatting seems very limited.

    (see web animation http://www.123esites.com/jbtmedia/tv.html and click red top 2 buttons to display scrolling text.)

    I appreciate any ideas to make the text more formatted with bold, and font size, bullets etc..

    Thanks

    If you choose to use html formating
    then you should use device fonts.

    As for html formating the only formatting
    you really get out of it is text formatting.

    Aside from font attibutes of html It's really
    a lackluster feature.

    Also html formatting is strict with the flash player.
    IE and NN look the other way when some bad code is written
    The flash player doesn't

    dynamic text HTML

    Thanks this is good to know.
    So my choice is if I use a my own custom font I cannot use HTML formating but if I use a device font I can use HTML formating.
