Thread: Using <b> tags in Html text

  1. #1

    Using <b> tags in Html text

    Hi, I have a textField set with Times font, embedded the font but the bold text does not display:

    Actionscript Code:
    myTextField.htmlText = "Regular <b>bold</b> <i>italic</i>"

    Displays:

    Regular bold italic

    however, when I set the Field to use device fonts, it works:

    Regular bold italic

    Is there a way of getting this to work without using device fonts?

    Hi,

    embed both the regular and bold, as far as i'm aware you need to embed all variations.

    my hobby

    I have attached a sample fla
