If you don't need to do it using actionscript, then it can be done using simple tweening option in flash. There are also ways to do text animations using actionscript.

You can visit http://www.flashkit.com, and search for text animation.

best way would be to create a motion tween on the timeline.

1. use the text tool to write whatever you want. ( make sure your text is static)

2. on the keyframe (where your text is), right click and choose "create motion tween" ( note, the keyframe will turn blue.)

3. create another keyframe somewhere on the timeline (note ,you should see a arrow between the 2 keyframes with motion tween).

4. drag your text around to animate or on the properties tab, choose alpha and set to what you like so it fades in or out.

hope that makes sence..
