    Embedded fonts are missing characters in display despite having all glyphs...

      Hi,

      As per the subject, I have a vast array of different fonts that I need to load on demand via CSS to SWF.

       

      For the most part, this works very well. I have around 600 fonts where everything is just fine.

       

      I also have some problem fonts like the below;

      That is _supposed_ to display;

      "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

      abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"

       

      1. All the glyphs are there, and have been validated using font.hasGlyphs(string) method.
      2. The font works perfectly in numerous desktop applications
      3. The font works perfectly when converted to a web font

       

      Nonetheless, no matter what I try, or what SDK I use, the problem fonts always fail to display on the same characters.

       

      My guess is, because they are allowing spaces for the characters, that the glyphs and / or metrics are slightly out, but I have absolutely no idea where to begin debugging this and I would welcome any input from anybody who _has_ got an idea!

      Thanks,

      G
