Some RSS feeds, such as those provided by CNN, actually
render the <image> tag with a src equal to a file or URL on
their server. I'm able to render this HTML using the "htmlText"
attribute of an mx:text tag, but it seems Flex doesn't like to
actually render the <image src=""> properly (in fact, maybe
it ignores it all together?).
I understand the Flash security restrictions at play here -
but is there any way that this might work? Maybe it's not a
security issue but something that I can resolve myself?
