    Insane CPU use on mouse over on text...

    I'm making this dynamic website in Flash. When displaying articles with alot of text (two colums, approximately 1000px x 100px, 11px font size, dynamic text field), the cpu use goes through the roof when I move my mouse over the flash. When I don't move the mouse, the cpu is at 0%, when I move it, it's 60-100% going up and down...

    Does anyone know what causes this, and if there's anything I can do?

    I've tried juggeling around with the font settings, but it doesn't make any difference... I'd hate it if I have to start breaking the articles into pages just because of this...

    I'm on a P4 2.4Ghz, 768MB ram, Geforce 4200ti gfx-card... Which "should be enough for anyone", to recite a famous qoute...

    But... as we speak, I think I found the problem.. I hadn't included the font outlines.. Including them, the cpu use-dropped by approximately 90%... Irritating, cause I didn't want the anti-aliased text.. Guess I'll have to go for a pixel-font then..

    Can you post the fla file?

    I'd like to test it on my machine.

    Cheers.
