When I produce a block of text in flash I can make certain lines/words bold and in colour but when I import the file into dreamweaver none of the attributes seem to be applied can anyone please help me.

why are you using Flash to create web text.
flash is not designed for that > instead illustrator of photshop are more typography software.

in addition if your flash isnt working properly make sure u convert ur block of text into a symbol (right click on text) then export as swf movie.

stil if ur flash isnt showing in broswer -> make sure u test it online as previewing in dreamweaver isnt the same as previewing in a live broswer.

Hi Chris thanks for that. I was using flash because I was producing a scrolling text box without thos horrible scroll bars am I on the right track with doing this. Cheers, Ian
