I was just wondering if anyone knew of a patch or other way to enable Flash to use the Japanese character set. I've gotten Japanese characters to work through a VERY inconvenient way through a set of 8 fonts that each ascii corresponds to a character, but looking them up is a nightmare, only to be used for titles or graphics. Normal text is too time consuming. So I was wondering if there was a way for it to accept the japanese character set you can load with Windows. When I enable the japanese character set, the characters show up while typing, but when I finish editing the text, it turns into random box characters. Just wondering if anyone knows how to do it. I would assume the Japanese version of Flash can do it just fine.
