    load variables

      Hi there,

      I apologize for my ignorance. I am new to Flash.

      Is it possible to show a HTML file with color images in a Flash movie (like this one: http://www.aseana-lounge.com/ssi/colors/colors.html), or only .txt files?

      It should be embedded in the movie because I want the underlying music to continue.

      Any help is deeply appreciated.

      Thank you

          You can use HTML tags within flash to a degree. But Im sorry to say that its not the easiest thing in the world to do. I’ve recently been using XML to pass HTML tags to flash using a table formatted thingy. Try taking a look at:

          myText.html = true
          myText.htmlText = "all your tags and things here" (this can be information held outside of your swf) in lets say a .txt file to start with.

          Once of the problems with flash is that it will only recognise old type tagging e.g. <b></b> and not the new all improved god knows why <strong></strong>

          The way I got around that was to write a function that looked for new tags and replaced them with ones that flash recognises. Simple lmao. Good luck
