    Hi, Everyone
    I am having trouble reading some half-width Japanese characters in embedded flash applications online. The full-width Kanji and characters are readable, but it's still somewhat ugly. So is there any way that I can make the Japanese in a flash look better and more readable? like changing the font?:confused:

    Thanks. ;)

    Not for Flash. The creator embeds the fonts it uses so you can't change them unless they provided a way to change it, but likely not.

    I think the Japanese on Windows looks rather nicer than the Japanese on OSX. Is there any way that I can make the Japanese font look like on Windows? I can easily read out the characters in Windows but it's kinda hard to read it on OSX, esp. the "ten ten" and "maru." Although I can still read the characters on OSX, i just want it to look nicer :p.
