My question is less about xml and more about placing things with unknown heights in a clean column. Usually in a for loop you could easily write temp._y = this._height*x. but as most of you can already tell if the heights are all different thats gonna result in something funky :cantlook:. As it has. If anyone could help me out that would be awesome, I was makin some good progress tonight until I hit this road block. Thanks in advanced. The fla,swf, and xml file are in this folder.
