Having a problem with a FlashEff text effect

I'm trying to put together my first FlashEff flash movie. The image effects work as expected, but I'm having trouble getting the text effects to work. Assuming you have the FlashEff extension installed in your copy of Flash, can you tell me what's wrong with my text effect?
I'm using the effect "FESClouds" and there are several problems/anomalies. It look sort of okay at first except te text is moved to the right and the last words is cut off.  Then the whole un-effected text appears (properly positioned) and then the missing last word appears on the offset (effected) text. ???

    I have reviewed your FLA and found the issue that you haven't embedded the characters glyphs in the dynamica textField..

    Just embed characters and all should be working for you.

    Works great, thanks Aneesh. Please hold on to the links above because I will probably have a lot more questions coming up that can be based off of that flash file.
