Best way to accomplish this is to use a pixelfont.

Set textfield to dynamic, and most importantly, place your textfield on whole integers, meaning 35.0 instead of 35.2

Also, make sure the movieclips containing the textfield, are also placed on whole integers.
eg: y = 35.0 x = 126.0

I did a quick search, and here's a pixelfont (close to arial) for yah:

Actually, I think just setting your text objects to dynamic and turning on the 'Render as HTML' option is the simplist solution. A pixel font wouldn't be needed.

Yes, you're right, works too. :)



Btw, the website (http://www.neave.com) you're referring to doesn't use arial I think? It's more kind of a microsoft sans serif type.

Hello,

and thanks for the replies.

You are all right:

1) you should place the text in a decent number like : 100 and 100.

2) It is not arial, i THINK it is tahoma or verdana, but i haven't actually tried to make it exactly like that... so :(

3) in flash mx pro, there isa button in the properties panel, that turns of anti-aliasing, and that worked just fine!

thanks
