Ok, so I may be misunderstanding things but I have been researching and tinkering with Flex 4 and displaying HTML Content for a couple days now and I am pretty frustrated.
So I have written several flex 3 apps using the mx components and the .htmlText property to display dynamic data coming from a database. To style the htmlText I use a StyleSheet Object that has several style classes. Then inside of the htmlText I would use several <span class='aStyleClass'> tags to have multiple styles in one text control.
From what I can tell in Flex 4 there are no StyleSheet Objects and when you are displaying HTML in a Spark component spans don't even support the class property they only support inline font styles. Why would Adobe create their own textFormat and stray away from StyleSheets? If I try and use html content with a <span class='sdfa'> it throws run time errors. So how are you suppose to use a dataset that is displayed in html, ipod and flex, using Style Sheets and <span class> is such a common thing.
PLEASE if I am missing something here throw me a bone
