It works in the test, why not the real thing?

Ok, I admit it, while Kirupa was down today, I went somewhere else to try and find some flash help. I’m trying to make a news feed type thing, like you can find on almost any site, where flash takes the information from an xml file. I used THIS tutorial, and it worked fine. I then moved the code into the site I was building and changed it so that the tags in the xml file were more relevant to what I was doing. Of course, it didn’t work and after checking the actionscript and the xml file, i couldn’t find any problems. So, I copied the code from the test, exactly as it was, re-named my textbox to txt (as in the tutorial and the test that I did) and copied the xml file that i had used for testing to the same location as the flash file. It still doesn’t work and I can’t work out why. However, instead of showing nothing, it shows the following:

<font size=’+2’ color=’#3366cc’><a href=‘http://www.communitymx.com/’>This is Headline 1</a></font><br>This is where you can add content that will appear under the first headline<br><br><font size=’+2’ color=’#3366cc’><a href=‘http://www.flash-remoting.com/’>This is Headline 2</a></font><br>This is content that can appear under the second headline.<br><br><font size=’+2’ color=’#3366cc’><a href=‘http://www.macromedia.com/’>This is Headline 3</a></font><br>This is content that can appear under the third headline.<br><br><font size=’+2’ color=’#3366cc’><a href=‘http://www.macromedia.com/’>This is Headline 4</a></font><br>This is content that can appear under the whatever headline.<br><br><font size=’+2’ color=’#3366cc’><a href=‘http://www.macromedia.com/’>This is Headline 5</a></font><br>This is content that can appear under the whatever headline. fdhasdzfhadfhgah<br><br>

I thought it might be because I had the code and textbox in a movieclip, but I couldn’t see why this would happen and when I put the stuff from the test file into a movieclip, it still workeed fine.

Can anyone shed any light on this problem? Am I doing something stupid do you think?
