    Loading Text Files with Hyperlinks into Dynamic Text Field

      I am using Flash 8 and loading external text files in dynamic text fields on my webage. These texts contain html links (<a href="page.html" target="_blank">Click Here</a> and I have "render as HTML" on and "selectable" off in my dynamic text field. Also, I am loading a CSS file. Not only do I not have a hand cursor, but I do not even have any of the text from that piece of html code down. What is going on with this? Please respond asap, as I have been struggling with this for a day now. Here is the Actionscript for loading the CSS:

      var flash_css = new TextField.StyleSheet();
      flash_css.load("styles.css");
      flash_css.onLoad = function(success:Boolean) {
      if (success) {
      zloc_txt.styleSheet = flash_css;
      } else {
      trace("Error loading CSS file.");
      }
      };

      var zloc_lv:LoadVars = new LoadVars();
      zloc_lv.load("zloc.txt");
      zloc_lv.onLoad = function(success:Boolean) {
      if (success) {
      zloc_txt.text = this.content;
      } else {
      trace("unable to load text file.");
      }
      };
      zloc_txt.html = true;
      zloc_txt.editable = false;
      _global.styles.TextArea.setStyle("backgroundColor" , "transparent");
      _global.styles.TextArea.setStyle("border styles" , "solid");

      Here is a sample of the text file code:

      &content=<span class="headline">Northwest Arkansas Locations</span>
      121 Main St.
      Russellville, AK 77801
      (626) 111-1111<br />

      Thanks for the help,
