I recommend you use an xml file rather than a text file for storing your content. The main reason being that it tends to make thing more easily organizable, as well as easier to differentiate things like titles, contents, links, images, etc.
You could start off using a TextArea component if you want, just to keep things simple. If you want to format things you can use the htmlText property rather than the text proiperty when assigning your content. That will allow you more control of the presentation.
If you want to take the xml approach, you should search Google for "AS# XML tutorial" where you substitute whatever version you plan to use for the "#". If you plan to use AS3, there is a good tutorial here: http://www.gotoandlearn.com/play?id=64
Great! Thanks! I should've marked this as the correct answer, but I hit the thing before I followed the link. Sorry about that. That link is fantastic, and I appreciate your help. The xml file definitely sounds like the way to go.
