Hi

I am trying to load variables using the "SetVariable" function in the HTML
and that's work fine as long as I am using plain English text,
but when I am trying to load into the flash movie text in Hebrew for example or character from other language (in UTF-8) I can't see the text on the flash movie.

I need to know how to do loading of text in UTF-8 to the Flash MX and make that working.

need help please

Support for Unicode in Macromedia Flash MX It is possible to use Unicode characters in an external ActionScript file that is added to a movie using the #include action. The text in the file must be encoded in the UTF-8 format and the UTF-8 header ( \\!-- UTF8 ) must be placed at the top of the file.
