HTML text and Fonts

hi there kirupa’s!
this is the first time i’m working with html text and realised that the last weeks work is going to the toilet…

i’m having a bad time because i’m programming a website, and my font has no bold/italic, ect. i mean, in flash i need to select the variation of the font to aply it to the text field.

so lets imagine:
if my text_txt font is BentonSans, it wont care to the <b> tags.

is there a way to make the textfield change its font to BentonSans-Bold?

how can i tell flash that by <b> it means BentonSans-Bold, <i> for BentonSans-Itallic, etc? and can a dynamic textfield use more than one font like the normal textfield?

thanks in advance!
