Fonts display poorly embeded or imported eps

I am trying to use Frutiger Roman 10pt in a navigation.  The edges of the fonts look fine when zoomed in but blurred at 100% and in the final swf file.  I have tried embedding the font in Flash and exporting it as outlines from Illustrator as EPS files and importing them.  Any suggestions?

Thanks.

well, it depends on the font itself ...
and the optimum pixel/size it will show ..
if u need to have very very fine small print try FFF
http://www.fontsforflash.com
they have pixel fonts and most ppl use them

I would not recommend using a font with less that 12pts...

And if it is navigation, then you should definately not use something that small unless you are using a very boxy font...  anything that is too rounded or "smooth" will look poor, no matter what you do...

from Flash help

>>Not all fonts displayed in Flash can be exported with a movie. To verify that a font can be exported, use the View > Antialias Text command to preview the text; jagged type indicates that Flash does not recognize that font's outline and will not export the text.<<

best results for small text is to use device fonts..this uses the fonts on the client machine..there are only three types though..

>>named _sans (similar to Helvetica or Arial), _serif (similar to Times Roman), and _typewriter (similar to Courier).<<
