    fonts in flex/flash

    Dennis_gull

      I posted this question over at actionscript.org but It might suit this forum more:

       

      I'm trying to create an application with AIR but there is one thing that keeps bugging me and its the vector based fonts, even though I select arial 12px font-weight normal it still look different than the font in the browser and everywhere else.

       

      In the application I'm building I will have a textarea so I tried to import a html textarea (in flex using <mx:HTML location...) and the font in that textarea look like it should but the flex textarea looks like the flash font, heres two images illustrating my point:

      Is it possible to change the font in flash so that it look and feels like normal or do I have to load an external html textarea every time I need a textarea?
