I'm afraid that's not possible- the SWF font format for rendering
text accurately (DEFINETEXT) differs too greatly in capabilities from
the font format for rendering text so that it can be selected
There may be some special cases were it's possible nonetheless
(rectangular fields of text where all char and line spacing is *exactly*
 equal to the font metrics), but correctly determining and using
them is non-trivial.
