it looks like you're using 3 fonts in that textfield. what font is being used to display the commas and emdash?
Thanks for your response. DIN-Light is the font there. Here's my style sheet:
fontFamily: 'CentITC Lt BT',
I was able to address part of the issue by replacing the actual emdash character with "—". It's working like a charm. FYI: the following escape or html characters DO NOT work, at least now when importing from xml encapsulated in a cdata tag:
%97 OR — OR \u2014 (this last one works if you directly set your text field from a line of code in flash, but not if pulling from xml)
But, I am still plagued by the commas appearing backwards. Why?
This is what it looks like when I publish the movie locally in flash:
and then when I upload to a browser (I'm testing on a MAC in both safari and firefox):
The font is identical so it appears to be properly embedded, right? But note the backwards commas! Why??!!
PS - testing on PC with Internet Explorer produced the same result... backwards comma persists...!
i don't know what's causing that problem.
but i would start debugging by removing your stylesheets and see if the problem resolves. if it does you can start working on which style property is causing the problem.
