    Unstable html with dynamic text

    jdc59
      Hello, everyone.

      I'm having problems getting the dynamic text function to read an html text. I can get it to acknowledge <u> and <a href=> for links and underlining and even imbed images, but not <em> for italics or <strong> for bold. I have the "render text as html button selected," so I'm not sure why I'm getting these mixed results.

      Any ideas?

          Flash only supports a minimal set of HTML tags. <em>, <strong> are not supported.

            1. Be sure the html is not malformed. In Control->Test Movie you can use
            Debug->List Variables or Debug->List Objects and find the text field where
            you will see how the html is rendered in the htmlText property. Then paste
            that into an HTML validator to check for malformed HTML.

            2. Be sure the html tags you are using are supported by the Flash player
            version you are publishing. For Flash 8 here is the link to the
            documentation: http://livedocs.macromedia.com/flash/8/main/00001459.html

            3. Here is the general documentation link that will help you adapt design
            your use of HTML in text fields.
