    special characters

    I was trying to figure out how to add special characters such as accents, fractions, the symbol for degree, etc to the text in a dynamic scrolling text box. On a FK forum, it said to use ALT plus the right combo of numbers/letters. I tried that--from within the scrolling text box where I wanted the character to appear--holding the alt key as I entered the numbers. Nothing happened. I feel really lame, but...

    any suggestions out there?
    thanks.

    Define your text with actionsript, and use unicode...

    Or if you're going to load your text from a text file, url encoding...

    Last but not least...

    You can add the following on your first frame...

    System.UseCodePage=true;

    And that should at least give you all the accentuated letters you can type from your keyboard.
