Flash help needed

Hey Friends,
I got enough PHP under mybelts to get some corrections done in PHP
on my contact page, but now we can't
upload it, because two of the fonts are missing. Gill
Sans and one other - the one used in the body text on
the About Me page and the home page body text (Welcome
to my site). If I upload the corrected pages, the body text
font goes into a large, weird outline font.

I thought the fonts were naturally embedded on
Flash sites. I had someone help me and he put some odd fonts up
on the site, and I don't have them, I guess. Shouldn't the fonts
either naturally embed when editing in Flash? Or do you have to
put them in the source file with the site when uploading? The guy who
"helped" on my site was a Mac user, I'm on PC - so maybe some font
incompatibility problems?

When we uploaded the corrected Contact page, those fonts
appeared in a weird large outline font. So, I can't
update anything or upload at all until I have the
proper fonts, or embed other Flash friendly fonts.

Can anyone help? If we can't get them working, can I just
replace that funky body text font with Arial or
something universal like that? Suggestions for a legible PC
replacement font? And how do I do that in Flash? Arghh...

Any help would be appreciated.

Wow! I don't see what you have to complain about. Site looks great in Firefox at 1024x768 res. Very nicely done. Didn't check it in my other browsers, but then, I use FF exclusively.
