If I create a Flash movie with a non-standard font, how do I ensure that it shows on anybody elses machine?

Can I embed fonts or would I need to create the fonts as objects like a WMF to ensure they could be seen?

Thanks

If its 'static' text it will automatically be installed.... if its 'dynamic' text you'll need to tell Flash which characters you want to embed.... this of course only works with the SWF movie files .... FLA files won't embed the fonts so you will have trouble using them on another computer without the same fonts.

Basically if you don't know the difference between static and dynamic text .... you don't need to worry!

I've a few dynamic text boxes, know i was wondering how do i tell that it should embed the whole font, so that ppl that don't have the font, will still see it???

Nope .... all embedded text will be anti-aliased .... if you want to avoid that use the fonts from http://www.miniml.com but be careful and follow the rules exactly!
