I've got a dynamic text field that loads in text from a text
file. I've got many of these scattered throughout the website, all
of which have the same exact settings. Verdana font, embedded text,
render as html, multiline.
For some reason, on a certain dynamic text field, the
<b> tag (which I use and it works on all others) is hiding
any text that is within the tags. Since this dynamic text field has
all the same settings (it was literally a copy and paste and a
change of the var name) I don't understand why it is all of the
sudden not correctly using the <b> tag. Any advice?
for Flash to render the bold vvariant of a dynamic font the
font has to be embded in the file, only embeding verdana won't do,
you need to have verdana bold embeded also.
That doesn't explain exactly your problm, as you say bold
text shows up in other fields. It might be that those fields lust
don't look for the embeded version but use one fron the system, as
verdana is installes on most systems anyhow.
You can check the "generate size report" option under publish
settings, if you want to know what fonts (and which variants) you
have embeded in your swf.
