Having problem w/dynamic scroller text

hi everyone,

i followed the tutorial on loading dynamic scroller text (http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx/dynamic_scroller.asp), but my text is not displayed in the flash movie. can someone take a look at the source file for me and help me here?

\f0\fs24 \cf0

for new line, but the downloaded file just converted it as \

hm… that’s very strange.
well, i am on a mac platform so i used “TextEdit” for the text file. how odd that all these weird lines were added in the beginning of the text? i’m going to try and use Word.

thanks :slight_smile:
