okay, so i've got a situation where i actually want to treat
text as the shapes the letter forms create and not the outter
bounding box of the movieclip.
I'm dynamically making text in actionscript, then wanting to
assign rollover actions to it. The problem is im making a bunch of
text layers all overlapping, and i'd really like the user
experience to be if they roll over the actual text it trips the
events but if they roll over white space aroudn the text it does
flash used to behave this way and we'd have to put
transparent movies behind the text to make it treat the whole area
as a bounding box so buttons would work well. It looks like in v8
that was changed to automatically use the bounding area.. i'd
really like it to only trip when the user rolls over the letter
form.. any chance there's a parameter i can set on that movieclip,
or did the 'fix' remove the functionality entirely?
