Shared Libraries - Branden Hall's Original Solution

I was researching shared fonts for my SWF Headings library, and I kept coming across references to a post on Branden Hall's blog where he found a slick way to allow dynamic creation of elements from shared libraries. Alas, the post no longer seems to exist anywhere on his blog.

Finally, I found this post on Flashcoders which contains a sizable excerpt:

Interesting technique. Not sure I'll be able to use it, but good to have in the arsenal just the same.

[Edit] Found a more complete writeup elsewhere on Flashcoders: http://chattyfig.figleaf.com/pipermail/flashcoders/2004-June/115662.html

[Edit] Naturally, the Wayback Machine is the first place I should have thought to look:
