Loaded HTML Text In Flash not displaying with BlendMode.LAYER

Have a textField in which I'm loading HTML formated text into it. This textField sits inside a parent container which has its blendMode property set to BlendMode.LAYER. When I run the movie, the html text doesn't display. Any clues why?

Just to be clear, when you set the blendMode to normal, does the text display? Are you sure it's a blendMode issue?

textField.embedFont = true;
textField.defaultformat = new Format("EmbedFontName");

Do you have something like this?

or embed font characters?

If it doesn't work with normal blend mode either:

  • Does the loaded html contain unsupported html tags? Flash text fields support only a limited subset of html tags.
  • If not, it could be embedded fonts issue as konrad suggested.
