when i try to assign this text value to a html text field it appears right.......no problem.....
Tell me whether this text field is inside a movie clip......if yes then check its transformation property ........ if it is not 100% in height and width then correct it....and check whether it made any difference or not....
Thanks for this suggestion - but it doesn't bring us any nearer to a result:
We have checked all the scaling and everything from the _root up is 100 on the _xscale.
Other tests carried out:
1, Removing involvement of styleSheet class
2, CDATA and non CDATA tags. No change
3, stand alone swf with kerning on and off. Cannot replicate fault.
4, <p> tags, with or without. No change.
We think we've got the source of the problem - because the textfield displaying the HTML is in a component. We believe the letter spacing issue comes about from the component being resized.
The solution, as far as we can see is to simply use dynamic textfields instead of components - OK for future development, but what we've done already will need to be fixed by extra spaces in various places.
Thanks for your suggestion Pal_w_g - guess it was your input that provided the seed that led to the idea about the component.
