    Books ?

    Hi

    I'm pretty new to XML and I want to integrate it into a flash site.
    Now are there suggestions on how I should learn this the best way?
    I am hoping for a good book

    I know some PHP and I can use Xml but the link with flash hmm

    I'd like to make something like this
    http://www.factory4.co.uk/v25/
    I think its xml that's he's loading dynamicly?
    Would be very nice if somebody could help me out
    or give me some pointers!

    I am guessing that it is XML data driving the site.

    I don't know how you like to learn but I have a tutorial which shows the basics of extracting the data and putting them into a usable form. It isn't exactly like the site you mentioned but it gets a fair way of the way there:

    There are a couple of books out there that have flash and xml content. I think Wrox had one that specifically covers flash and xml. However I think the best book you can get is Colin Moocks ActionScript the definitive guide (ASDG) which covers everything you could possibly want to know about ActionScript.

    Thanks

    "ActionScript for Flash MX: The Definitive Guide, Second Edition
    by Colin Moock"

    or both

    If there's anything out yet from O'reilly, I highly recommend them, especially their reference guides.
