flash textfields have limited support for html tags. so, loading a html page into a swf is not usually going to work they way you want.
Hello again kglad.
Thanks. i suspected as much when I was researching this. I just wanted to survey the experts before I gave up on this idea.
(I am trying to get a flash weather widget to work. Well I have it working, but I need to get it to 40k and I am not sure how to get the thing down form 80.
I posted another mesage here as I was trying to load this widget as answf file into another Flash file so the size won't "count" as it were.
Just will not load completely though.)
p.s. try loading it into a non-zero level and see if it works correctly.
I know you are going to think this is a stupid question, but how would you make an empty MovieClip a nonzero level object?

you don't need one. just use:
kglad, would it be possible for you to look at my other posting called,
That is the proper forum for this discussion. I have posted my files there in a zip format.
My yourwidget.fla (or in the my case, palm_springs_2.fla), has 2 scenes. When I use my loadMovie in my "Test load.fla", it loads the preload scene and not the main scene. However, when I remove the preload scene from palm_springs_2.fla it will not load the main scene content either.
I am using an empty movieClip (with a instance name of "empty_mc") to load the incoming "palm_springs_2.swf" and using the code;
If I use "empty_mc.loadMovieNum("palm_springs_3.swf",1);", I get nothing at all.
I know I am missing something. If you are able to look at this code I would really appreciate it.
i don't usually download and correct files unless i'm hired.
Yes, of course.
My appologies kglad.
