Text in Flash is displayed graphically and is complicated. Moving a lot
of text in Flash therefore is quite processor intensive.
Generally use a simple sans serif font using the smallest masking area
that is possible.

It would be nice to move HTML text behind Flash using DHTML (on a lower
DHTML layer) but this is only possible with IE 4+ on Win 95/98/NT so far
because that is the only browser that the wmode transparent mode works
in so far. If you are designing for an IntraNet where you can require
users to use IE4 on fast computers using Win 95/98/NT then this could be
a very good solution.
