Bitmap Font Text Drawn to Bitmap

Is there a way to write a bitmap font right into the bitmap being desplayed?

Mabey better worded:
myBitmap.draw(image, t) draws a picture is there a way to draw text?

I’m stuck even if its just a work around in some way I would like to know… (the current work around i have in my head is writing it in a movieclip turning that into bitmap data and drawing it… esentially creating a prototype answering my question… but a built in way would be easier probably).
