Using basic html tags in dynamically loaded text

ok this is probably so basic but - how do i make say <b> tags in a notepad file load properly in my swf.

It seems to work when I “reload” a text field with different text - but not when it first loads.

My rudimentary code reads

  loadText = new LoadVars();
loadText.onLoad = function() {
 wordspre.text = this.wordspre;

thanks in advance
