Please help : Generating buttons

I have a file. Inside this text/html file, are links with names like so

<a href = “”>Fred’s Blog </a>

What I’m trying to do, is for each link that’s read into flash, have flash generate from a premade template, a button with “Fred’s Blog” on it’s face and the relevant link attached, in this case “”.

Once that’s done, I want to put them in a list, inside a movie clip and have that movie scroll (ie, when it hits the bottom of the list, scrolls from the top again), but thats down the track.

What I’m having trouble with, is generating buttons from the file links. Can anyone give me some pointers on how I might do it?
