Loading Text Question

Hi All,

I am working on a project now where I need to load the lyrics of several songs. I have the html version of the lyrics. I am wondering the best way to load the lyrics.

  1. Load from text file reading the html
  2. Load from text file with just normal text
  3. Read from an array inside my main movie

I was pursuing reading from the text file, but have not had any luck. Is there a special format you have to prepare the HTML so that the HTML is read properly into Flash (", ', etc)?

My code looks similar to this:

on (release) {
    loadText = new loadVars();
    loadText.onLoad = function(success) {
        if (success) {
            // trace(success);
            newsBox.html = true;
            newsBox.htmlText = this.myNews;

Here is what the HTML looks like:

<p><font face=“Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif” size=“2”>(music & lyrics by
Tara Leigh Cobble & Oliver Lollis) </font></p>
<p><font face=“Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif” size=“2”>Verse 1: <br>
Well, I was never less than perfectly happy without you. <br>
And I was never more inclined to stay on my own. <br>
But I guess the best surprises come when you’re not looking. <br>
