firetype

firetype is an Open Source library which enables you to use hardware accelerated font rendering in Actionscript 3 and Flash Player 11.

Steps In Using firetype

firetype reads and parses TrueType fonts using the OpenType file format, converts the characters into polygon objects and renders them via the GPU.
