Thank you Sam !
..for saying something I'd not fully realised up until now - I previously
was in the practice of converting text to symbols only if I needed to adjust
properties or tween... and I assumed that if the text (whatever font) was in
the finished swf file - it was there for everyone to see, regardless of
whether they had that particular font or not. I just read my help file
again, (its all there) - this time more thoroughly!
