    link to external URL from online swf

      Is there any way to link to an external URL from your flash site without having the flashplayer prompt you to change your settings and allow access to that page? (this only applies to swfs viewed through a browser)
      the only way around this i've found isn't very useful - you have to put a small xml file on the host server where the page you want to link to is located. i seriously doubt every site you want to link to will allow you to put an xml file on their host server just so you can link to their page. the code in the xml file just tells flashplayer that the site you are trying to access is safe. it's called crossdomain.xml
      anyone have an answer?
      thanks!
