    Japanese text won't display in SWF

    malachite00 Level 1
      Hi. I have a Flash file that reads text from an XML document and displays it in dynamic text boxes. Some of these boxes are animated and/or rotated, so I have embedded the fonts. Everything works great with English characters, but I need it to work on International systems also. When the XML file contains any Japanese characters (or any 2-byte characters), little squares appear in the text boxes instead of the correct characters.

      I can make it work if I use _sans as the font for the dynamic text, but this can't be embedded so the text disappears if it is rotated. I have also gotten it to work with the font Arial MS Unicode, but this bloats the SWF from ~400k to ~7mb!

      Does anyone know of any other fonts that support the high ascii/2-byte characters? Or is there anything else I can try?
