Using system fonts is the best idea since people that will read in Chinese will have the Chinese language installed on their comp. That's what I did for a multilanguage site i'm working on. For my part it's not XML but either text from a database or text file saved in UTF-8. To test your

Had this problem as well recently, I used XRay to see what was going on and I noticed that 2 or 3 times the Stage onResize event would be triggered with height and width values of 0 before getting the correct values. So I only added a conditional statement to delay my positioning actions : var
