Displaying Special Characters


I’m trying to displaying special characters dynamically in my flash app, specifically the Division symbol.
It seems that when the character is used in an actionscript class that is NOT linked to a library symbol in flash, the out put or the value is not showing or appears as an unknown symbol (question mark image).
However, when the symbol is placed in a class that IS linked the character displays correctly in both trace out put and within dynamic text fields.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
