Okay, I managed to create a movie that uses an embedded font (starting from testsuite/samples/shared-fonts.swf). With an embedded font, Gnash behaves just like Flash 10 (ColorTransform does apply to the TextField).

What I'm still not sure about is the embedded font in the original YouTube movie. As I mentioned, the font with id 9 contains only 12 glyphs, and it seems to be ignored. (Not sure what its purpose is.)

I'll take a closer look. I'm still unfamiliar with the code base, so it's going to take a while.
