Text: Spelling, Formatting, Translating

There are a number of features dealing specifically with text. For instance, Flash now includes a spell checker.

Another new feature allows you to use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to format text: the TextField.StyleSheet object in ActionScript. It's just a small subset of the full CSS that you can use with HTML tools such as Dreamweaver, but you can set all the common text attributes such as color, size, font, style (normal, italic, oblique), and weight (normal, bold, lighter). Flash CSS also supports a few other standard HTML tricks like making the font of a hypertext link change when the mouse pointer is over it. The CSS feature enables you to maintain a level of consistency between Flash and HTML files. It allows you to create one stylesheet and apply it in both environments.
