[AS2] Apply Actions to Text in TextArea?

I found a thread on actionscript.org that showed a way to load functions from text in a dynamic text box. It works using "[URL=“http://www.adobe.com/support/flash/action_scripts/actionscript_dictionary/actionscript_dictionary073.html”]asfunction". I tried it and it worked.

However, load that dynamic text into a TextArea component and it doesn’t call the function anymore! Is there a way to do it?
