I didn't find the begining of this thread, so I don't know if you have a dead-line or you just want to learn.
If you do only text animation and you are in a rush, you might wanna try swish (www.swishzone.com). It has some pre-built effects (I think fade in/out too) that make text animation very FAST.
Of course, if you want to learn Flash and you have the time, go for the real thing. But in my experience, swish covers 60-70% of a what an average designer has to do in Flash, and it makes a good add-on for speedy projects.
