Tag Type: 
Tag Flash Version: 
Unknown SWF Tag: 
This tag is defined by the Flash documentation by Adobe
Brief Description: 

Defines a text of characters displayed using a font. This definition doesn't support any transparency.

Tag Structure: 
struct swf_definetext {
	swf_tag			f_tag;		/* 11 or 33 */
	unsigned short		f_text_id;
	swf_rect		f_rect;
	swf_matrix		f_matrix;
	unsigned char		f_glyph_bits;
	unsigned char		f_advance_bits;
	swf_text_record		f_text_record;

Define an object of text so the SWF player can draw a string. The only difference between the DefineText and DefineText2 tags is that the latter supports RGBA colors. This can be seen in one of the swf_text_record structures.

Since version 8 it is possible to define extraneous parameters when defining a CSMTextSettings tag referencing a DefineText or DefineText2.
