    hi,

    your text looks fine on my screen (19 inch). if you don't want your text to be antialiased, you need to use the device fonts.

    then your font will be replaced by an appropriate system font on the client's computer.

    the bad thing about device fonts is, that you loose some control over how your text (paragraphs etc.) appears on the client's computer, because you don't know which font is being used.

    check the 'device font' box under the HTML tab in your publish settings. personally, i think your type looks fine, but i can see how someone accustomed to HTML text would think flash has fuzzy type. why? it IS fuzzy!

    You could try using dynamic text fields, or have you already done so?

    Indeed, HTML might look better, but you don't get the same beauty in HTML you can in Flash. That's your pro.

    Good luck

    Try to use different fonts (like Arial or Helvetica) for the small size letters.
    Good luck
