You're close ;) Try creating an editable text field. Make sure that the
glyph settings
are set to "Do not include font outlines". This will cause flash to use
the font renderer for the platform. (If your platform is performing
your fonts may still be antialiased.) Disable editing, border, and
selection if so desired.

Note that if you use this method flash won't be able to smoothly scale or
rotate fonts correctly
because these features are not built into most platforms.
