    Can't use Verdana or Tahoma for Greek fonts

    I'm a little bit confused cause I can't see Greek fonts using Verdana, or Tahoma fonts in Flash MX (only arial, courier and times new roman work). I can use these fonts in Word and all other applications, but I can't use them in Flash...

    Any suggestions?

    I read from Macromedia's help file for Flash MX that it embeds fonts automatically by default. So, I guess it embeds latin (english) characters but can't do the same for other 1byte languages? Then how it can embed arial, courier and times new roman for Greek?

    Is there a way to fix this from preferences or some sort?

    they will only be embedded automatically if you use static text.

    for dynamic text fields, you must choose yoru embedding options by pressing on the character button in the properties panel

    I wish they could be embedded automatically using static text. But verdana and tahoma can't. Maybe I should write to Macromedia for a solution...
