IE if i wanted to have an 800x600 flash movie that i could display cnn.com or something of that sort. Is it possible?
to some extent it's possible but it's not easy. you can load the html into flash but flash cannot parse the html (except for a very limited set of html tags). you would need to parse the html yourself.
A second option is to display the HTML content over the top of the Flash content.
If is project is to be displayed as a Web page... it's all HTML anyway.... some of which may be Flash content, some that is regular HTML content. So it's not that hard to add in a little more regular HTML content.
In your Flash movie, leave a blank space with the exact dimensions/location of the HTML content you want to display.
Then using HTML/CSS z-indexing, stack the HTML content over the top of that blank space... making it LOOK like the HTML is a part of the Flash.
If you want to display part of another Web site like cnn.com, you could do that in an iframe.
