    HTML Rendered Text Fails and symbols

    Flash Pro 8's dynamic text rendered as HTML will not render or

    Try it yourself, it wont work.

    Yes, I embedded the symbols, I also embedded ALL 39477 GLYPHS just to test it - and it still didn't work.

    Yes, I tried £ ¥ (insertAmpersandHere)#163; (insertAmpersandHere)#165;

    I also tried %A3 %A5 but perhaps I applied it wrong?

    Here is my code - all instances in the script of £ ¥ %A3 %A5 do not show the symbols:

    htmlText = "My text: £ ¥ (insertAmpersandHere)#163; (insertAmpersandHere)#165; %A3 %A5 ";

    Remember, this text is to be rendered as HTML - when it is not rendered as HTML, the symbols are rendered (because I embedded them) but I want this text rendered as HTML, unfortunately, Flash overlooked the 2nd and 4th of biggest economies in the world's currency symbols?!?!?!? :O

    I can't speak for Flash 8, but Flash CS5 renders them fine. I tried Flash 10, AS3 and Flash 8, AS2 and both worked.

    myText.htmlText="(ampersand)#163; (ampersand)#165;";
    Probably a dumb question given the number of glyphs, but are you sure the font has those glyphs? Have you tried any other fonts?

    Thanks, rdoyle720!

    It's working now for some reason but I don't know why - I didn't even do a restart. Strange.
