    Check these out for XML info:

    http://www.tupps.com/flash/faq/xml.html
    http://www.ultrashock.com/tutorials/...l_pitfall.html
    http://www.onclipevent.com/radio/how.html

    Another good source of info is Colin Moocks "ActionScript the definitve guide" book.

    For chat rooms you will need to use XML Sockets. Moocks book got me started with Sockets.

    Two huge thumbs up for Colin Moock's book. I just got mine a week ago (it takes ages to get things shipped to Australia) and have found it an invaluable refernce. If you want a good guide to general flash stuff I would also recommend Flash 5 Magic. It has a couple of good XML examples although they are not socket based.

    I also think the faq is pretty good ;-)

    Thanks

    Luke
