Css/shared fonts preloading problems

i now have my flash file reading in an embedded font, using a style sheet, and also using external text.

it all works fine locally on my machine, but when online on a slow connection stops displaying the text.

i’ve tried preloading the embedded font (as its in a separate swf) but without any luck. i’m not really sure how i can preload the .swf (the shared font), .css and the .txt files???

any help would be extremely good

anyone got any ideas???
