do you model?

Mais oui, naturellement!
But only for the views I care about :D

This is the best MVC quote to date!
In a reply to the "PixLib MVC, where should Key triggers go?" thread on the pixlib list, Tim Will said that
"to the application, the user is just another model :)
Who do models
'talk' to? Only views..."
Follow the thread and you'll also find a great explanation on the MVFrontController engine inside Pixlib.
Really great insight.
Btw, for you flashers out there, if you didn't check out Pixlib yet you really should. Even if you use ARP. The codebase is one great piece of actionscript goodness fabriqué en France.

dude, where's my font ?!

No need to tell me that you know everything there is to know about fonts in Flash. Cause I will call you a liar without a blink :D
So put this one in your bookmarks and remember that you have it next time your bold text doesn't show up in your nice alpha rotated text block. And if you got that going and you're thinking suicide with CSS in Flash read this one too. Twice preferably...
