Create a new instance of InlineGraphicElement.
If I do that, will it make 2 HTTP requests to grab the same image? My original design was to use TextFlow with <img> tag, but after I load the same image a few times, I realise that it's making a HTTP request for the same image every time.
The question is if I want to load the same image in a textarea/textflow multiple times, how do I do it without the SWF making multiple HTTP requests.

I don't recall if InlineGraphicElement lets you specify cached bitmaps or
not. If it does, SuperImage from quietlyscheming.com and Spark Image in
Flex 4.5 have image caches.
I don't know what will happen if two requests are made right after each
other, but once the image is in the browser cache (assuming it is allowed to
be cached), the image should no longer be pulled down over the network
