The HTMLText of many Display Objects seems extremely limited.
I am trying to DYNAMICALLY add bold <b> tags to an HTML
string, but the tags conflict with other, pre-existing formatting
For example, the initial line looks like this:
"This is some html text and this is <font color="red"
>text I want to highlight over here.</font>"
Now imagine that the user dynamically adds a BOLD that is
supposed to highlight the words “This is the red text I want
to highlight over here.” Here is how the text comes out:
Example: This is some html text and <b>this is <font
color="red" >text I want to highlight</b> over
I realize that nesting the opening FONT tag within the BOLD
tags causes problems within Flash Display Objects (and it is just
bad coding anyways). On a normal HTML page I would ad CSS styling
to a given area with Div tags for example, but I am not able to do
so on Flash HTML Objects.
Is there any other way I can add styling to text within a
string without splitting tags up?
