    External list with hyperlinks?

    I need to create a simple text list where each item will have a hyperlink. But I want the list to be able to be edited from an external file. I have imported simple text files in to Flash text fields but I don't know where to begin when adding hyperlinks to those text items.

    I have heard that maybe XML will need to be used but I don't know anything about XML. Can anyone simplify this for me?

    the code should work in the browser. (working here http://www.wattsupnow.com/help/dynam...icHtmltext.swf) this is just a cut/paste of the code.

    post/email your fla if you can.

    I'll look at my code again later today. I'm using MX not 2004 Prof. Should that make any difference?
