    Passing Text Formatting Info. In and Out of Flash

    manhattanmediaworks Level 1
      Hi all,

      We need to develop an application that involves formatted text. We want to use dynamic text, where we pull in text from an .as file at runtime. But when we do that we don't have the ability to format the text. Are there ways (or tutorials that describe them) to feed formatted text into Flash dynamically and still preserve the formatting (bold, italics, text color, etc.). Our ideal scenario is to have a web form (Flash or HTML-based) that allows for formatting options (bold/italics/underline/text color/size ,etc.), that we can store in a database, that we can later connect to from Flash, where we pull in the formatted text in at runtime.

      Am I smoking crack? Can this be done? Any ideas on best approaches? Tutorials?
