HTML Entities in Flash

Friday, May 15th, 2009

For whatever reason there html text in flash does not support too many of the named characters. Any time I’m loading in an external file I’m constantly forgetting about that and things like bullets and emdashes don’t show up. I finally broke down and went to: http://www.evolt.org/entities and built a script to take care of this nagging problem. It will convert most of the standard name based entities to their numeric counterparts.
You can grab the file here.
