    Aliased Embedded Fonts


      Is it possible to embed a font in Flash and have it displayed as though it was a device font? In other words, can embedded fonts be aliased?

      Using the bitmap-text option doesn't work, Flash tends to screw up a lot of the character spacing. I haven't found any pixel fonts that mimic Arial, Verdana and Tahoma accurately. Setting the stage quality to low does alias the fonts but they become fragmented.

      Using device fonts is an option but, as far as I understand, some browsers/operating systems will take it upon themselves to anti-alias the text.
