    how to ignore tabs and carriage returns?? please help

    Hi. When I import xml text into Flash MX, i noticed it preserves all text formatting including carriage returns and tabs so I have to have all the text on one line in the text editor for it to look right. Is it possible to treat the text as if it's regular html... meaning you have to foce line breaks via a BR tag or a P tag? I tried the enescape() function but that doesn't seem to work. Any help? Thanks.

    Hi Lifeforce,

    If you set the condenseWhite property on your TextField to true, and the html property to true, then use the htmlText property to set the text it will do what you want.

    Hope this helps!

    Hey thanks. I've never heard of condenseWhite. I'll give that a try.
