I have seen on a web site that they had used an external .PHP file and an external .CSS file to give life to a news text box.
The text box was one of the pre-made one that Flash MX 2004 gives you and then linked the files together and they were able to have customisable colours and add snazzy links and so on.

The bad thing about it all is that you have to put in ‘%20’ for every space… or it could do it automatically… I’m not sure.
It’s really the ActionScript that gets me… how can I get it to link to it and not come out in PHP Code?
