External text + shared font + CSS = yuck

I’ve noticed something, and I’m not sure if it is a bug or what.
I added a font into a shared.swf that is loaded in my _root movie.
This font is used in all the text on the site, so by embedding it in a shared.swf it saved a ton of time.

I set up linkage on the font.
X export on first frame
X export for AS
X export for runtime sharing

So anyway, it works… to a point.
It seems that shared fonts break any HTML tags.
This sort of blows, because it kills my CSS formatting.

What is this?? A bug or am I overlooking something.
I’m in MX04 on a Mac.
