this will be a problem in authoring but not in the finished .swf, which
contains outlines for all fonts used. Just keep the same fonts on both
machines when authoring and you'll be fine. If you cannot keep all used
fonts on both machines, just don't change the font designation(s) when
authoring on the second machine. When you re-open the.fla on the first
machine, it should then revert to the originally designated font(s).
