In Flash, what happens when fonts are nested inside MCs which are not integer-positioned?

I am developing a Flash-based website using Miniml's free fonts. I understand that the fonts should be placed at integer positions, but what happens when they are nested inside MCs which themselves are not integer-postitioned? Do I need to place all my (many) levels of MCs sans decimal points?

Flash MX 2004

Flash MX 2004 crashes on startup, suspect font issue, as the last thing the splash screen says is "initializing fonts". DreamWeaver, Fireworks and Freehand work fine,
I had been messing around with the fonts on my XP pro system lately, trying to get Extensis Suitcase working right, so I moved most of my fonts out of the windows/fonts folder (except the ones with a big red A, as suggested in suitcase's manual), but much wierdness ensued. A mess of 0 byte font files appeared in windows/fonts, which I managed to get rid of after removing windows/fonts special properties, and later restoring them. Have moved fonts back into windows/fonts, but Suitcase reports about 16 postscript fonts as "missing", but these same fonts don't show up either in windows/fonts, or under the font lists in The Font Thing or OT1 Font Manager. OT1 reports a "temp" font named "Sydnie" which doesn't show up anywhere else.
Have tried fixing registry, using OT1's tools and much else, to no avail. Have reinstalled Windows and Flash a number of times. Windows explorer is a little off, too, locks up, etc.

Online Resources for Doing Character-Based Flash Cartoons (No Print)?

Looking to make some character-based cartoon animation in flash. What plugins, 3rd party apps, techniques, etc. have you used and would recommend? No dead tree literature, please, as I am far beyond the clutches of Amazon, and my local library is absolute crap.

Flash and .exe file

Flash quandary: A previously defunct Flash project I left unfinished is coming back to life. This is good. What's bad is that I only have one .EXE file projector file, not the .FLA, not even a .SWF. Is there any way I can bring the .exe file into Flash so I can finish the project?
