    I have a site that loads the content from seperate HTML text files. Some of the pages are quite long, which means a lot of scrolling. Is it possible to add bookmarks to these text files so that the user can click a subheading then jump down the text to a specific place? I know this is easy using plain HTML, but is it possible within Flash?

    These book marks are called Anchors in HTML.

    It is possible in Flash, but only in HTML enabled dynamic text boxes.

    Add to that. You do it like this:
    Code:
    <A HREF="#mycheese">My Cheese</A>
    
    <A NAME="mycheese">My chese smells like bla bla bla</A>
    Click on "My Cheese" and it will take you to the text. Oh and the # is very important.

    For some reason that doesn't work. I know about that in HTML and have never had any problems. Flash just won't respond to those tags when the text file is imported into the movie.

    See the files I'm working on here...

    Does anyone have any other suggestions?

    If the text was written in Flash, then you could probably set a goto frame, but seeing as it isn't, your a bit stuck really.

    Sorry
