Thank you,

Please forward to Veronica.

Could you give more specific instruction?
How do I specify _root.stage.angle to 90?

I m newbie to ActionScript and flash.

Once I have tried as:

var page_num;//the page number
var styles:TextField.StyleSheet = new TextField.StyleSheet();
function setStyleFile(cssFile) {
if (_root.strIsEmpty(cssFile) == true) {
styles.onLoad = function(success) {

But no success.

Thank you.
