Default HTML formatted text missing in Linux

I've got a swf (version 7, as 2) that loads HTML formatted text (with corresponding CSS tags) from a .txt file, and everything seems to work well on Windows (so far I have tried Opera, Mozilla, Firefox, IE). But when I just tried to run it on a Linux dist (Ubuntu) all text is missing. It is just empty!

The CSS tags I used, just look similar to the one that follows:

ActionScript Code:
flashStyle.setStyle("headertext", {color: "#543314", fontFamily: "Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif", fontSize: "13px", fontWeight: "bold"});

I also tried to remove the fontFamily, but nothing seemed to happen. Does anyone have any thoughts? I found a rather similar thread thread, but i didnt get any wiser by reading it. Is it impossible to use HTML/CSS and Linux??

I've surfed around a bit on the net now, and it appears to me that ALL dynamic text is missing (for instance every SWF in the tutorial section of this forum). Static text seems to work fine, however.

I'm currently runnin Ubuntu 5.04, and Firefox 1.02, and Flash 7.0.

Anyone that have seen any dynamic text in Linux?

I have the same problem.
Here is a link to an example: http://www.overflux.com/congress/bet...geTesting2.swf

As you can see in the example in windows and macosx, a dynamic text field using default font is displayed and bolded, along with an image. These are both shown using the htmlText version of a text field.

If you access the file in Firefox with Flash Player 7 in the Breezy Badger distribution of Ubuntu, the text does not display.

Things to note: Static text displays fine (html or non-html), which means the font is not a problem. This seems to imply that the text field's dynamic property causes the problem. However, the image (using an <img> tag) DOES display, meaning the dynamic property does not affect this.

If others would respond with whether they can see the text in other Linux distributions, it would be appreciated.

Any ideas on what the problem here is, and/or how to fix it?

I tried it on Gentoo and it worked...

Not sure where the problem is, as I manually downloaded and put the flash player 7 in both operating systems.
why would one not be able to handle dynamic test even though the same flash engine is being used?
