My question is: Will swfc accept UTF-8 files ? and How (example ?)
my original problem was taking a .sc file and replacing the text with the UTF-8 encoded string and saving it (Notepad)
as UTF-8. swfc seemed to be confused over the BOM (byte order mark) at the start of the file.
Are the unicode characters in the string and the warning can be ignored (i.e. I just need the text chars and will need to take care of Fonts et al elsewhere in the flash code)? Or have they been deleted?
I assume swfc is validating against a default font?
When the variable.swf is combined with the player.swf and other swfs ... I thought the font support, if needed, could be in the other swf???
I am still trying to complete this as a test.
3) I found a reference that said Flash would display the characters correctly as long as the font was embedded in the swf or if it exists on the machine runnng the swf.
Thanks again for the time and help! Sorry for all the posts...
