    How do I create crisp text in Flash 8 but publish to Flash Player 6?

    I am using Flash 8 and recently realized that most people do not have Flash Player 8 downloaded; therefore, the text on my published swf's does not show up.

    I must now publish my F8 documents in Flash Player 6 (just to make sure that everyone can view my pages), which means that I can't use that nifty anti-alias for readability option offered by F8.

    Question:

    How do I create the most crisp and sharp looking text possible with Flash 8, not using the anti-alias options? I want any viewer who comes to my site to be able to view it without having to download Flash Player 8.

    Thanks

    If you have MX 2004 or MX, you can just use bitmap text. (Be-Ware: Sometimes if it is placed in a button,graphic ofr movie clip, it may turn out blurry.)
    OR
    In flash 8 instead of clicking anti-alias for readability, click bitmap text.

    Publishing in version 6

    What is the clarity like in Flash 8 using bitmap text? If I publish to Flash Player 6 is this going to look horrible?
