Last year, I used the CasaFramework in my localization projects and pretty much saved me from further angst in Font usage in AS2 Flash development.
Recently, Aaron Clinger and Michael Creighton have released an AS3 version of the library. Also a new AS2 version has been released as well. (v. 1.5) I am sure there are many frameworks and libraries out there. I just mention this because they have a very good community base. I don’t know what I would do with out it in my AS2 development.
You can find the library at: http://casalib.org.
