Flash text quality - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Hi; I was considering the use of flash text for a navigation bar using the standard DW4.0 "Insert Flash Text" function. I was hoping for help on two questions: 1. The text quality is DREADFUL. Is there a way to make these look better? I've tried several fonts and sizes. 2. Since the links in the Flash text have to be doent relative, will it know to adjust the path if a table of Flash text is used throughout a site (such as a library item or server-side include), in varying directory levels? Thanks! Dave...

    > 1.
    what fonts & what sizes?
    flash antialiasing isn't that great especially at small sizes.
    > 2.
    the link is embedded in the movie so no - it will not be modified
    automatically.
    however you can pass vars to the movie in the url eg:

    in the movie:
    on (release) {
    getURL (theurl);
    }

    in the html:
    <param name="movie" value="movie.swf?theurl=aboutus">
