Here is the synopsis of the problem: I built this tool that
makes use of global variables from an external .AS file for
localization purposes. I have the require //!-- UTF-8 setting atop.
So far all the text imported from the.as file works fine, I do see
chinese characters, but when I try updating the custom context
menues........all I see are "??????". What am I doing wrong? is
there a way to solve this puzzle?
I don't have an answer, except to say that I gave up long ago
trying to deal with Chinese fonts in Flash. Flash's handling of
unicode fonts is very buggy to me. I was creating banners for a
Chinese client. Looked fine on my system, but the fonts were weird
sizes, and some Cantonese-only characters not appearing on their
system. I have had similar problems even in my FLA files. I'll have
a Chinese font show up properly. Then close and re-open the FLA
file and the Chinese has disappeared.
The only solution I've ever found is to break apart Chinese
fonts into shapes.
There may be a better solution than that, and if you find it
I hope you'll post it here.
