    Need help - problems with embedding bold fonts (Flash CS3, AS3)

      So I'm tearing my hair out over this one project where I'm trying to embed Arial in a project so that it can be used by two different dynamic text fields. Nothing I seems to do works. If I try embedding the font using the Properties window and set the text fields to bold, the text doesn't appear. If I debold the two text fields, the text DOES appear - but of course, without the bold. If I try to embed the font in the library, link it, and use two different TextFormat objects to format the text fields, the text shows up - but it isn't bold, even though I set the TextFormat.bold property to true.

      So what's going on here? How can I fix this?

      Thank you for your time.
