Dynamic text in external swf invisible when loaded into parent!?

Hello Everyone

My website is coming along nicely, just starting to add some content and to make it nice and easy for my client to edit their own content i thought I’d make all the text external.

Works fine in the external swf, when I publish that file alone the text shows up perfectly. But when I load this same swf into the parent movieclip (the main website) the text is invisible. I’ve put in a trace function and the parent MC can output what is in the dynamic box, but it’s invisible in the player.

I get the impression this is something you guys will have heard many times before and it’s just some setting or rule of thumb I’ve missed.

Any help or suggestions appreciated and my thanks in advance
