> What you mean by "device fonts"? Does it embed the font in the SWF still?
.. i thought that was flash lingo :)
the "device" in "device fonts" relates to the output device- usually some pc running the flash player. "device fonts" means using either one of the two fonts that come with flash player (_sans and _serif, AFAIK), or a font installed on the user's system.
this is really only good if you want to keep filesize to a minimum for some reason. if you prefer good design, embed your font :)
i would guess you'd find many posts on flashcoders or similar relating to device fonts for the more intricate details.
