    Anti-aliasing with non-embedded text?

    Is there any way to enable type smoothing on non-embedded fonts?
    I don't seem to find any way.
    The AntiAliasType prop of the TextField class is settable only when font is embedded... this makes me worried..

    I'm having the same trouble. I've just got back into AS3 (after checking it out in the beginning), and i can't seem to get my text smooth.

    a size of 40 and a font of Georgia actually looks smoother to me in html than flash! Now that cannot be true..

    So what are we missing... Anyone? Flash 8 had a little option to smooth none embedded text out, but that was in the IDE.. argh :/

    I dunno, looks like device fonts are not rendered by the OS anymore, but all within flash.
    (I'm just guessing)

    Basically what I see is that you HAVE to embed fonts to get aliasing. It is actually stated in the AS3 preview documentation. You get all those pretty useless (in my opinion) fine-tuning, but it's limited to embedded fonts.

    I couldn't see much difference in type rendering with the advanced anti-aliasing settings.
    On the other side, the font rendering looks still pretty heavy on the graphics.
    Still can't use flash for heavy data loads to display.
