    a link inside XML loaded into flash

    I am using a xml file to load in data to a flash file.
    The data loads fine, and the image loads fine, I can even hover over the image and I get the hand curser, but the href linking doesn't work...below is the code:
    Code:
    <option>
       <imageSize imageWidth="600" imageHeight="450" />
       <image>image_gallery/images/0001.jpg</image>
       <thumb>image_gallery/images/thumbs/0001.jpg</thumb>
       <title>0001</title>
       <info><![CDATA[<titlePreset>0001</titlePreset>
    <infoPreset>some copy here<br>
    <a href="http://www.flyawaysilk.com/store"><IMG SRC="payPal_button.gif" ALT="pay with payPal" border="0"></a>
    <infoPreset>]]></info>
    <extraHeight>7</extraHeight>
    </option>
    this is the part of the code that loads the image, but doesn't allow it to link...is there some other code I will need inside of the XML to allow for a hyperlink?
    Code:
    <a href="http://www.flyawaysilk.com/store"><IMG SRC="payPal_button.gif" ALT="pay with payPal" border="0"></a>

    (close your infoPreset tag - </infoPreset>]]></info> )
    PHP Code:
    _xml = new XML();
    _xml.ignoreWhite true;
    _xml.load("option.xml");

    _xml.onLoad = function(){
    node this.firstChild.childNodes[4].firstChild.nodeValue;
    ta.html true// AS 2 TextArea component
    ta.text node;
    dt.html true// dynamic textfield
    dt.htmlText node;

    your right it actually is working...with one problem.
    I clicked on the very top of the image and ...bam...it worked
    1. it seems like the whole image is not clickable.
    2. the whole image gets the hand curser but is not all linking out.

    Any thoughts about this strange problem ?

    ...through further investigation the entire button is clickable.
    It seems that only sometimes does the click spawn the window...this is strange...any suggestions ?

    Unhappy

    I have this problem too. Did you figure it out?

    If I click on the image under "News / Updates" at www.carmenberniergrand.com, it begins highlighting instead of opening the link! I have to double-click to make it work! If I set selectable = false, then double-clicking won't work either

    You'll need to assign a function in Action Script to accord with the variable from XML

    What variable are you referring to?
