   $list: uni dimensional array. REMOVE special charactes (non-english characters),
          otherwise the script will crash and burn.
   $file: string. Name you want the file to be saved to, include the .swf extension.
   $x: integer. Desired width of your movie.
   $y: integer. Desired height of your movie.
   $f_size: Desired font size for the list.
   
   Of course, you could include the r, g and b, font and other characteristics in the function,
   feel free to experiment by yourself.
