Tom, This is just out of left field here, but have you tried physically removing the font files from your PC/Mac and reinstalling them? From everything that I've read in this thread the problem seems to be that the font outlines are not getting embedded for that specific character. Also, do

The complaint is that there's no AS3 version of the Data components and some UI Components (like the Tree) And that really bites because I use and abuse the Tree component on a regular basis in my AS2 / Flash MX04/8 projects! ___

I work on both. I'm more comfortable on a Windows PC than a Mac, but that is simply due to what I'm used to. (I started on Mac's in the mid 80's, then switched up to Windows PC's in 95 when MS launched Windows 95.) In all honesty, if I was to have to pick right now, I'd give a long hard look at

Would you need two licenses of Flash - one for each OS? My guess is yes. I had this question with Director MX 04 and the word straight for Macromedia (at the time) was that the license is platform-specific. So, although I could load a copy on my primary workstation and one on my laptop, they

You need to determine where the Enter key is causing this. Is it the event on the Object element in your HTML page or the Flash SWF. Capture the Enter key via an event.keyDown on the Object element in JavaScript in the HTML page and see if the problem still happens. -Original Message-
