    Displaying Text Files in Flash

    Greetings,

    Can some one point me in the right direction. I would like to do the following:

    1. I have a graphic that reads: "NEXT RACE:" Next to it I would like to place a text box that would fill with the appropriate copy, referenced from a text file that a non-flash person could edit. When it's all put together, it would read like:

    NEXT RACE: Donington

    ...where "Donington" would be fed in from a text file.

    2. The second thing would be scrolling headlines that would move either vertically or horizontally (I haven't decided) but again, I'd like the box that this copy go into either be a seperate html file or a text file that someone who doesn't have Flash could edit.

    3. In either case, would it also be possible to control the font, color and boldness as well?

    Thanks for your help.

    You can use some html tags to format your text, but mainly only these:

    Hey that's great! That should get me started.
