    Dynamic texts hide under mask!

    rfdstudio
      i used some dynamic texts inside a movieclip. but when i create a mask layer above and preview the swf whole dynamic texts disapear. by the way i set my texts format to dynamic because i need no-anti alias texts. ofcourse i could set them to "Bitmap Texts" in flash 8. but the text becomes anti-alias while moving and animating and i need my text to be fixed on "no anti-alias" even while animating. pls help me out on this.

          Embed font outlines in order to use dynamic text with masks.

          Odd. I'm using Bitmap Text in Flash 8 and it does not become
          antialiased while moving. Of course, I'm using Static Text (not Dynamic).
          There really isn't any reason to use Dynamic Text unless you need to change
          the text content ... well, dynamically.
