The difference between system fonts and FFT fonts
So, what's the difference between using the system fonts
and the FFT fonts? The system fonts (_arial, _courier and
_timesroman) will take up less space on your created SWF file.
FFT fonts however, will be embedded into the SWF file. This
means that by using these fonts, your file can swell significantly.
How to put your own fonts into your folder (Commercial
