    Howdy...

    Yes only when you are using the HTML 1.0 tags to format the text... More than that(table, frame...), Flash won't understand it...
    Check this technote from the MM...

    Tricky

    It's either very hard or very easy depending what you want.

    It's easy to open an HTML page into a new browser window from flash Actionscript.

    It's not easy to parse HTML (or a workable subset of HTML) within flash and translate that into displaying the page using Actionscript commands. I'm afraid you have to ignore .gif files too.

    I know how hard it is because I just did it (although things are always a little easier in retrospect) - and it took me days - and I'm not an inexperienced programmer. Actually the hub of the problem is dealing with tables.

    Does anyone know if this program was actually available as open source code - in Java or Javascript say?
