Embedding fonts in Flash : Extended characters

Note to self (I keep on misplacing the textfile with this): when embedding a font in Flash, embed these characters too (next to Uppercase, Lowercase, Numeral and Punctuation): éèëêáàäâíìïîúùüûóòöôñ&@"#'(§^!ç{})°[]%£€ÉÈËÊÁÀÄÂÍÌÏÎÚÙÜÛÓÒÖÔÑÇ

    from an XML i tried to embedd but nothing works..
    anybody can help??

  3. @citra: It looks that it’s not the flash character embedding that’s screwing you; You’ll need to look into XML CDATA in order to get your entities parsed correctly into your XML file (and thus in the flash file) 😉
