By setting the frame rate to 25 frames per second you are correct, very
few computers will be able to maintain that speed even for an animation
built with only very simple shapes. With standard text virtually no
computer will maintain an animation in Flash at that rate so if not set
as High, the Quality will fall to Low temporarily while animating.

Fonts broken apart are usually about the same size (a little larger or a
little smaller) as the original font. However some Fonts when broken
apart can be optimized to be substantually smaller. Usually the only way
to see if this has any advantage is trying it.

If your animation plays better with Quality as Low then it is a much
better technique to set the Quality as High then toggle the Quality at
the beginning of the animation (turning Quality to low) then Toggle the
Quality back to High when the animation back to High. This is far better
because unlike AutoHigh you control the Quality and you don't get
flickering Quality.
