no you can't
but you could rename the file to GIF, ADB or whatever you
like and load it.
Flash does not care what file extension is as long as the
file header (inside that
file) is correct. Perhaps they would never figure it's an xml
Else, do not use XML at all, just structure variables and use
the variables names
instead of nodes to build the content.
