Default XML & Internationalization

I am part of a team that creates interactive training material (SCORM compliant) and heading towards internationalization.

The applications we create training materials for are used in the US, Europe, China, Bali and the Middle East.

The training materials include screenshots and Flash simulations. On first glance, it seems that the Strings Panel may offer a viable means to create this content. If we were to use this, we could send the XML text content out for translation and create screenshots representing each language.

Based on the Codepage of the user's system, appropriate content could be displayed. This is a simplistic example but I wanted to know what obstacles may present themselves.

In other words: what would be disadvantages to this approach? Particularly the use of XML & Flash.

mr. olive . . . hold on to your monkey!

Default Strings Panel Not Formatting Text

I am working a proejct that reads just like yours. I have the following concern about Strings Panel: there is no word- or character-level formatting support.

Try bolding a word within a text that is linked to a Strings Panel ID- it will not stay bold.

I tried adding html tags and Strings Panel did not parse it.

I am currently looking for a way to use part of the Strings Panel via ActionScript- Nothing doing so far, but I remember seeing a post about it recently (where was it...?)
