    Long Articles... a lot of text... how to deal with it

      Hello Forum

      I am using flash 8. I have to display a few long articles in flash. mostly it will consist of titles, images with captions and rollovers, links, author names, subtitles... I know from past experience that this can be quite a pain to deal with. both setting up and in terms of user experience.

      A few concerns: moving around long text blocks can be very processor intensive in flash. no idea why... Also scrolling long text blocks can also be processor intensive and slow things down.

      I was thinking of maybe creating some modules and maybe try displaying the text via XML? Does anyone have any advice on that?

      Well.. yes I guess i'm looking for advice, pro's and con's on different approaches. Any insight is much appreciated.

      Thanks in advance.
