Poor font rendering in Lightroom web gallery (Flash)

When I export a gallery for the web in Lightroom (as "Flash Gallery (default)"), the text which contains Latin 2 characters in rendered in a different font, and appears pixelated in the browser.

When I replace font="Myriad Web Pro" in resources/style.xml with "Arial" or "Tahoma", all text is in the new font, but pixelated. Changing the size="..." attributes has no effect.

I presume it is because Myriad Web Pro is embedded in the Flash application, but it does not contain Latin 2 characters. When a system font is used instead (either automatically or manually by changing style.xml), it renders poorly.

I tried resetting export settings in Lightroom, but it did not help. When I open the gallery on another computer, it looks the same.

I have the following versions of programs:

Windows 8.1 Pro
Lightroom 5.3 (Czech localized version)
Adobe Flash 12.0.0.44
Firefox 27.0
Google Chrome 32.0.1700.107 m

Screenshot of the gallery as displayed in Firefox:
