French / Special characters not displaying in Flash
Looking for some support on a flash app that we built. We're experiencing two problems:
1. Form dropdowns are populated by CDDATA in XML and apostrophes are showing up as ' within flash.
So "I'm quitting" in XML shows up as "I'm quitting" in the flash dropdown menu. When the form is posted, it posts the apostrophe properly, so it looks like display issue only.
2. We were having problems displaying special French characters (such as: ê, ù, É, ô and more) and hardcoded them into Flash to make it work.
The characters are displaying properly in flash, but when form is submitted to the php script the special characters get garbled.
PS. We are using the font Helvetica throughout the flash app, which is not a default system font..
