Strange Text Scrolling In AS 2 SWF File

An introduction to a translation in ancient Greek was online on this site for a few years before a peculiar error was discovered.

Before scrolling, the text displays correctly:

Text on Flash page before scrolling problem observed

After scrolling, the top line of English text disappears:

Upon entering the FLA file for this page, the textbox was found to be erroneously set to Input Text instead of Static Text.

The problem was not observed again after the fix was made and a new SWF was published and uploaded to the server:

Text no longer disappears on Flash page after scrolling
