I'll have to respond to you tomorrow. This is a work-related issue. The person that I communicate with sent me an email regarding this last week, and I need to access that email to update this. (Hope that makes sense)

I have created many flash-based tutorials, which is how this "CSS" will be used. This is the first time that I have worked with this programmer and I am pretty confused as to how he has things set up. My purpose in pursuing this issue is to both try and understand so I can communicate with him and to see if someone has any suggestions for if/how a "CSS" can be created.

Here is his response back to me:

I’ve set up similar systems in the past, but it is generally a lot of work to set up this type of style system for small boxes of none dynamically generated text. You notice the text in the examples are all dynamically created, which is great in some ways, but brings up a slew of other issues. You will also notice the examples are all in AS3, and we are decidedly using AS2, which means applying styling classes like they do is not an option.

I don't understand what sort of issues dynamically created text brings up...  I seldom use static textField and it's been like that since FMX era, and I don't recall having any problem with the dynamic text...

The second link that I have provided above is done in FMX 2004, so it does use AS2...

--------------------------------
P.S. How do I view our comments so that I see all of your response? I could not figure out/do not have time to figure out how to see the whole comment. I'm hoping that you didn't already address his comment.

Thanks.

I don't understand what your developer mean by 'view our comments'...  What comments is he referring to???  If he meant the comment from the tutorial on ActionScript.org, he does not need to...  You don't have to read any comments on that page...  The tutorial itself is done in AS2...

I'm so sorry! The text below the ------------- line is my question to you. Everything above the --------------- is the programmer's comment.

Regarding your programmer's comment, this is the link to the AS2 tutorial on using CSS which I have already posted twice above...
   http://www.actionscript.org/resources/articles/55/1/CSS-in-Flash-MX-2004/Page1.html

As for your comment on not seeing all the comments, I don't understand why you are not seeing all of them cuz I do...  Maybe you could try different web browser???
I suggest you open a new topic on that here cuz you might get better help on that question cuz I cannot duplicate it...

Thanks. I'll look  it over. I am incredibly busy at work, so I do not know when I will be able to get back to you. Can I close the  ticket and re-open it or reference it in a new one in the future?

You can either close it and create a related question later on if you choose to, or leave it as is where the question will be automatically go into an abandoned/cleanup queue after certain time period of inactivity...  It's totally up to you...
