Flex 3.0 embedded fonts

My bindable text fields are not displaying and I believe it is a font issue

I have a tag as follows:
<mx:Text id="lastSentenceID" text="{siteData.lastResult.page.lastSentence}"
            x="34" y="558" color="#585956" fontSize="14.81" fontFamily="Helvetica Neue" width="640" height="22" fontWeight="normal" letterSpacing="-.25"/>

I have another tag as follows:
      <mx:Text id="boldGreenQuestionID" text="{siteData.lastResult.page.boldGreenQuestion}"
            x="34" y="544" color="#768E20" fontSize="12" fontFamily="Helvetica Neue" width="640" height="22" fontWeight="bold" letterSpacing=".5"/>

The 2nd text block appears. The only difference is that the fontWeight attribute is bold for one and not the other. If I change it to bold for both it looks fine on the Mac. However, when I upload to the server to view, the type displays, but the fonts are now Times New Roman.

Initially I thought it was an XML issue, but that is not the case because I can view the text when I change the fontWeight to bold. I am using a Flash CS3 file for my fonts and a publish setting of Flash Player 9 as well as 10.

Lastly, to get it to display, I find it odd that my text tag used to be  fontFamily="Helvetica Neue", and I had to remove the space in the name. My style tag has the space between Helvetica and Neue. If I remove the space  in my style tag, I get an error. If I add a space to my text tag, the text is no longer displayed. I removed the space in the text tag above to display the text.

I have attached the CS3 flash file I used to embed the fonts. You will need to change the extension to .fla.

<mx:Style>
      @font-face {
    	src:url("supportFiles/fonts.swf");
    	fontFamily: "Helvetica Neue";
  		}
  		@font-face {
    	src:url("supportFiles/fonts.swf");
    	fontFamily: "Helvetica Neue";
    	fontStyle: italic;
  		}
  		@font-face {
    	src:url("supportFiles/fonts.swf");
    	fontFamily: "Helvetica Neue";
    	fontStyle: bold;
  		}
  		
	</mx:Style>

The fonts embedded were postscript and not Truetype.
