    dynamic textboxes reading .txt files

    This is in reference to dynamic textboxes reading .txt files:

    Whenever I try to format the text to be bold using the <b></b> tag within the text file, the text is no longer visible, but text not using the bold tag is. The same goes when I try to apply a global bold style to the entire textbox from within Flash. Why is it not allowing me to format the text beyond color and size, and how can I fix it?

    Also, when I try to apply a unique font face to a line of text within the text file, that line disappears as well. Again, the only control I have is over color and size.

    Thanks a LOT for your help,

    Carl

    Is the box html enabled?
    code:
    textbox.html=true
    textbox.htmlText=_level1.textlineVariable

    The other day, I bought a box of animal crackers. On the side, it said "Do Not Eat if Seal is Broken". I opened the box and sure enough...
