    AS3: Loading External Text into a Master File

    "B" Level 1
      I have a master file that I want to load an external text file into. This external text file will also have an external style sheet applied to it.

      In your opinion, which way is best to load the external text file?

      1) Generate a text field dynamically in the master file using the TextField class and then loading the external text in.

      2) Placing (at authoring time) a dynamic text box on the master file's stage and loading the text in.

      3) Placing a dynamic text box in a separate .swf file and then loading that external swf in to the master file, then loading the external text into the text box.

      Any opinions?

      Thanks...

          On my project im going with the third choise, dont ask why, cause i just do.
          only difference is that i also lad my data into this external swf file.
          in other words i use mainly second as well as im going with the third one.

          In my opinion, no idea if thats the best way, but i certanly know that its (for me) most confortable way.
