Text registration in SWF

I am editing a flash document, and have text that is interacting with other text in order to recreate a logo (the client wouldn't provide me an appropriate image of the logo no matter how I begged and pleaded.) Anyway, when I export the document to an SWF file, the text which is aligned properly in my fla file comes out jumbled.

As you can see in the link below the "z4mayor" logo is 'offcentered' for lack of a better word, ie the '4' in z4mayor is more towards the right than it should be. Am I exporting wrong? Am I missing a step when converting the text to a symbol?

Here's the link:

Hi Dan,

It looks like the text is set as dynamic, rather than static. Try selecting the textfields and changing the type to Static Text. This will render the text as a vector graphic, rather than relying on the system fonts. This will also make the text look much smoother. Otherwise, looks good!
