          If it is a Flash site, then you primarily want to edit whatever Flash source files come with the template--files with an .fla extension, although there may be some data files that contain content such as .xml files.

           

          As far as where to look within the Flash source files goes, there's a world of possibilities in where you'll find the content you need to change.

           

          If the file uses timelines, it may be easiest to first move along the timeline and see if you can find the content.  You may need to hide any mask layers to see things.

           

          It is also possible the file loads content dynamically from the library, in which case you'll need to dig thru the library to try to find the content.

           

          There's also the possibility that text content is added via actionscript code.  This code could be in the timeline, or if your file uses AS2 it could be attached to buttons, or it could be in separate actionscript files, or it could be in any separate data files (xml, txt, etc).

           

          If your template is a complicated design, it could be tricky finding things, so what you might try as an approach is to retain an original copy of all the files safely somewhere and tear apart a copy of them without mercy until you find what you need.  That way you don't have to fear breaking anything... always work on copies and retain an untouched master.

            Hi. Yes, I have done it myself. You have to look for all the ".fla" 

            files. You can just open them in your FLASH and customize them.
