I've always used Flash to generate font swf's.
Haven't really checked if they look different compared to using ttf's directly on the latests
SDK's, but shouldn't be too hard to do

Subject: Best way to render font?


Just a small question regarding rendering of embedded fonts in Flex 4.9 (earlier versions
as well btw). When embedding e.g. 
Helvetica, fonts tend to get a lot more anti-aliasing and therefor look quite bold. Even in
their "normal" weight.

Is there any best practice to keep fonts looking nice and sharp? Tried a lot of combinations
already, but current am at:

@font-face {
src: url("assets/font/myfont.ttf");
fontStyle: normal;
fontWeight: normal;
fontFamily: myfont;
embedAsCFF: true;

Is using a different type of fontfile e.g. better?
