    formating loaded text in a dynamic text box

    I need help!
    I designing a text heavy CD ROM. Everything is going fine so far, I am loading the txt files into scrollable dynamic text boxes. This works fine. my query is this: Is there any way to format the text that i have loaded in e.g. font size, tabs, bold etc. I havent a clue how to do it.
    Please, please help someone!

    yes, in your .fla on the properties panel for each dynamic text box make use the little button that looks like this : < A >
    is clicked.

    you can use simple html tags like < font>
    and < a href >
    etc
    what the hell's a motion tween?
