Making links within an external text document

About to pull out my hair…I’ve loaded an external text document into the dynamic text field fine, but am unable to make any html tags within that document work once it’s up on the web. I’m trying to add links within the document. HELP!! Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks.

loadText = new loadVars();
// creating the loadVarsText function
loadText.onLoad = function() {
scroller.text = this.overview;

Should i add something to this to enable the html tags to work??
