Although it's best known for animated and interactive content, Flash also provides a number of powerful capabilities for working with text. This is important because most of us learn and are informed by means of text-based content.
Flash allows you dynamically create text fields, set their various properties using ActionScript, and load and style the content within them. This gives you extensive control over the text content in your movie. In this lesson, we'll explore most of Flash's text capabilities.
One of the projects you'll create in this lesson is a Flash browser. This browser loads external HTML files into a text field and uses Cascading Style Sheets to format and style the text within the field.

Create text fields dynamically
Format text using TextFormat objects
Use the MenuBar component to add a menu to an application
