    xml file and htmlText box doesn't work




      i have a action script that read a xml file and put the content of this file in a
      htmltext box, but when come inside the xml file a code like this"<font color='#003399'>Test</font>" the box (htmltext) appears empty.


      my code


      this.my_txt.embedFonts = true;
      this.my_txt.html = true;
      this.my_txt.htmlText =myTextos;

      The variable "myTextos" load the content from xml ...but it doesn't appears in my htmltext box


      How can i fix this?



      obs: When i erase the tag <font color='#003399'></font> in xml the variable "myTextos" appears correctly in my htmltext box.

          you probably have a malformed xml file.  unless your html tags (like <font color='#003399'>) are in cdata nodes, you do have a malformed xml file.


          if you don't know how to use cdata nodes, post the contents of your xml file.

            Look my xml file:



            <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
            <item><![CDATA[<p align="center"><b>Recordações do Escrivão Isaías Caminha</b></p>


            <font color='#003399'>Leiva era o chefe</font>, era a inteligência do grupo, pois, além de poeta, tinha todos os preparatórios para o curso de dentista.

            why my dinamic box (in flash 8, action scrpit 2) doesn't interpret the tag <font color='#003399'>?
