Howdy... :)

Embed the same font that you use in the loaded SWF file into the main SWF file... :)

But if I don't mask that layer, text can be seen...

If you mask a textField, Flash requires a font outline which can be used to render the masked textField... Did you try what I said??? :)

I don't know how to do it. Is there a tutorial?

It depends on the Flash version...

Click on the textField on the stage... Open up the Properties window from the menu... and start playing the options in that window... :)
