%E7, which in Unicode is "e" with an accent, will show up as nothing (literally, no output) for instance. In fact, all French language characeters do not work.
What really gets me is that other characters, such as inverted exclaimation and "%" sign, show up with their Unicode codes, no problem (%A1 and %25).
I have used Arial, Verdana, Times. Nothing works for the French language characters. I have encoded the text file as UTF-8 and also tried UTF-16. Nothing. I am running Mac OS X.
I'm going nuts.
Properties Window > "Character..." button > Embed font outlines for: [•] Specify Ranges > Select the glyphs you expect to use.
A flash file doesn't automatically embed every character of every font included in the file, you have to tell it which ones will be needed.
I tried setting "Characters..." until I went blue. I read this was the solution on a thread here at webmasterwold and elsewhere. I tried manualing adding "è" and "é" etc.. to the character list, to no end.
It finally worked when I created a text file UTF-8 encoded, and added the actual glyph myself into the text file with my operating system's language settings:
Then I set "Characters..." in flash to "No Characters". (Why? Because I tried everyhing else!). And now it pops up no problem.
Thanks for the help.
on the property of my dynamic text:
click on "character ..." button
-> specify a range
choose "basic latin (95 glyphs)"
and add this in the textfield "include these characters" :
add more if you need moore special char....
First off, you should make sure that any text you are grabbing for your dynamic text field (whether through a .txt file or some other server-side scripting such as PHP) is utf-8 encoded - then you must go to your dynamic text field and select "character..." and, in addition to selecting "basic Latin" (or whatever character set you need) enter all the "odd" glyphs you need (éèêë etc...) in the "include these characters" window... publish and it should work.

Hope we's helped : )
