AS2: populate flash text fields with an html table

How can I use a ready made html table to populate flash dynamic textfileds? Is this possible in AS2, im more of an AS3 guy and this is a hand me down project?

its a basic html table structure:


so theoretically I could use:

flight_mc.airline_str = flight_xmlnode.firstChild.nodeValue;

to where flight_xmlnode = table


Any thoughts, all is helpfull,
