I have made a flash banner but I want to include an input text box so people can type a word in and then hit the 'search' button.

1. What is the best way to create the input text field. I have tried to insert a text box and make it editable which seems to work but then I get error messages saying it won't stream?

2. How can I get a flashing cursor in the text box. I know I can make a simple animation of a flashing line but wondering if there is a way to actually have a cursor. At the moment I need to make the cursor a button and tell it to stop playing the animation as soon as the user clicks on it, otherwise there will be 2 flashing cursors.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
