Font issue between PC and Mac

Hey all,


I have been searching for an answer to this for awhile and can't find anything concrete.


Without getting too complex we have a TextField with an embedded font lined up in the center of a symbol. If the .fla is published from a PC, it's only centered on PC and if the .fla is published from a Mac it's only centered on a Mac.


On PC when running a .swf published from a Mac the font appears too high. On Mac when running a .swf published from a PC the font appears too low. I haven't been able to figure out the root cause or a solution yet only that it doesn't always happen on every single TextField but once it happens it seems impossible to fix.


We made a new .fla and setup TextFields the exact same way and embedded the font and it worked perfectly. But no matter what we do to our real .fla nothing fixes it.


Anyone run into this before?


I have been aware of this bug since CS5 however the old workaround of always publishing on a Mac no longer seems to work in CS6.
