    To retrieve remote xml files, like the XML Tutorial here on Flash Kit illustrates, just call on the following ASP page rather then the remote address.

    Unfortunately, I have only done this so far is ASP. I'll be working on a PHP version and hopefully someone out there can create a Perl version.

    Here it is... Just Copy and Paste it into a new text file and name it fetchXML.asp. Then call on fetchXML.asp from the Flash file.

    <%@ Language="VBScript" %> 
    <%option explicit %> 
    ' -  Just Change the Value of srcFile to the proper moreover xml stream.
    ' -  Go to http://w.moreover.com/categories/category_list_xml.html
    ' -  For a Full listing of all of the content available
    ' -  Instead of Directing the Flash File at a .xml file, direct it to this file.
    Dim srcFile
    srcFile = "http://p.moreover.com/cgi-local/page?c=Pop%20music%20news&o=xml"
      'Nothing Below Here Has To Change
      Response.Buffer = True
      Dim objXMLHTTP, xml
      ' Create an xmlhttp Object and Get it!
      Set xml = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
      xml.Open "GET", srcFile, False
      'Write Text to File
      Response.Write xml.responseText
      Set xml = Nothing
    That's It!
