hi kosla,
here is a simple method,

In this example, you need to create a dynamic text field called my_txt, and then use the following ActionScript to embed fonts and rotate the text field. The reference to my font refers to a Font symbol in the library, with linkage set to my font.

var my_fmt:TextFormat = new TextFormat();
my_fmt.font = "my font";

this.createTextField("my_txt", this.getNextHighestDepth(), 10, 10, 160, 120);
my_txt.wordWrap = true;
my_txt.embedFonts = true;
my_txt.text = "Hello world";
my_txt._rotation = 45;

Apply additional formatting for the text field using the TextFormat class.

The MovieClip.getNextHighestDepth() method used in this example requires Flash Player 7 or later. If your SWF file includes a version 2 component, use the version 2 components DepthManager class instead of the MovieClip.getNextHighestDepth() method.
