I've heard a discussion about this on mailing list:

It seems that Microsoft Windows *do generate* the italic/bold/bold-italic font
style automagically from plain face.
For example:
Microsoft Sans Serif (for both bold and italic) and Tahoma
(for italic) relied on this capability.

I've created flash file that's likely to expose the problem,
by creating text fields that tries to use plain/bold/italic/bold+italic face
from a modified font that have only 'plain' (no bold/italic/bold+italic)

I used BitStream Vera Sans Mono 1.10 with font name modified to "Gnash
FontFace Tester Mono" for preventing conflict and substitution. Only plain
face was installed.
This is a correct result from Macromedia Flash Player 7.
(You will notice that bold, italic, bold-italic face were automatically
This is an image result from Gnash.
(You will see that all text were displayed as plain face)
This is my test flash file (created from Macromedia Flash MX 2004),
along with test font and reference screenshots. Also attached here.

System: Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 "Lenny" i386
Gnash: gnash 0.8.10-1~lenny from APT repository
