The weirdness you're seeing is because you're using the _sans font which is a Flash internal font used for editable text. Change this to Arial or some other font that's actually present on your computer and it works as you'd expect and want it to work.

As a general rule you should not use the _sans, _serif or _typewriter fonts for anything except editable text.

I had to assume that the file was SO.FLA - please add an extension to your files if you're making them available to others. It avoids confusion, especially since the Macintosh File Type and Creator attributes are not stored on this server.
