      Admission: I'm a greenhorn to Flex and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong here. Please help!

                var url:String = "http://www.google.com/";

                var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);

                try {

                     navigateToURL(request, '_blank'); // second argument is target

                } catch (e:Error) {

                     trace("Error occurred!");
