Text / Links questions


I’m using Flash MX 2004 to create a very simple site which contains a lot of text. I’m new to Flash so have a couple of questions:

  1. I’ve been creating my text ‘pages’ simply by using the text tool to write the text and converting that to a movie clip. Is this the most effective way of doing it, or should I be using the ‘text area’ component?

  2. I cannot figure out how to create standard hyperlinks in the text. I can see how I can call an external URL by just selecting the trigger text and using the link field. But what about cases where I want the user to click on a specific word and the link goes to another movie clip (i.e. another page of text).

Many thanks!
