Okay, I seriously might break something. How the hell does Adobe make Fonts so difficult in Flash...


Step 1: Open CS5
Step 2: Create textfield (dynamic, classic). Name instance MyTextField
Step 3: Select font Helvetica (Style: 45 Light)
Step 4: In actions, type MyTextField.htmlText = "<b>Bold</b>. Not bold";

Why when I export is it not showing up as expected? I tried MyTextField.embedFonts = true, tried using style sheets, but nothing seems to work.

My head hurts. Ever since I started working with Flash (10 years ago) making fonts work takes a day of work and an asprin.
