Embedding fonts in AS3

I love this! ... library, be-gone!

package {

import flash.util.describeType;
import flash.display.MovieClip;
import flash.display.TextField;
import flash.text.TextFormat;
import flash.text.AntiAliasType;

public class Test extends MovieClip {

// be sure this is pointing to a ttf font in your hardrive
[Embed(source="C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\somefont.ttf", fontFamily="foo")]
public var bar:String;

public function Test() {

var format:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
format.font = "foo";
format.color = 0xFFFFFF;
format.size = 130;

var label:TextField = new TextField();
label.embedFonts = true;
label.autoSize = TextFieldAutoSize.LEFT;
label.antiAliasType = AntiAliasType.ADVANCED;
label.defaultTextFormat = format;
label.text = "Hello World!";
addChild(label);
}
}
}
