    adding actionscript to basic text??

    Is there any way to add actionscript to basic text that is not in button format. I want to use the text formating convenience but I want to move a current swf movie to a different frame with script. Any way?

    basically, I want to write text in a text box like this.

    Details>>

    // all that text would be in a text block. The Details>> would be like a button. When clicked it would have script on it that would go to a frame label in the current movie that it is in. I want to format text without having that Details>> turned into a button. In the text properties where it says url can you place actionscript in the field to make a word or any text tell a movie to advance to another frame?

    Render the text as HTML and then you can use named anchor tags (and control the text formatting).

    I understand that I can make the text html, but how can I select text and tell it to move to a certain frame of the current movie. I understand how to link to a url, but I want to add actionscript to the text.
