I'm trying to animate text in 3d, and to do this i've made a
MovieClip with a single character, created one of these for each
character in my string, and animated the x, y, xscale, and yscale
values to produce the effect of 3d. This works well.
My only problem is with my algorithm for setting the initial
position of the text. I've attached my actionscript...
This works perfectly except for "symbol characters" like ?,
!, &, @, etc.
textWidth appears to be 0 for these characters and just
creates an empty MovieClip.
