loadVars for HTML text AS2.0

Hey there … so ive just been fiddling with a loadVars to load in some html text, into my dynamic text box, with render as html button tagged.
Umm … it only loads in a certain amount of my text file (which is a .txt – and my fonts have been embedded)./.

var textData:LoadVars = new LoadVars();
textData.onLoad = function()
    area_txt.htmlText += this.content;

my text file looks a little like this:::

content=<p>blar blar for a few lines</p>

And yeah, it just doesnt load in all the wonderful text I have written. I must have done something horribly wrong!?:sonic:

great if someone could clip my ear for me …
