XML quickie - importing a link, not just the text

Hi, I have been going up and down Sen’s XML posts, which are amazing, and I got all my code working. I can import XML just fine, but I keep trying different ways of importing a link, and I can’t seem to get flash to display it as a link. this is the code I am using for posting the XML into a text box

_root.News1.text = _root.LoadedNews.childNodes[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue.toString();

I can get the link to show up, URL=“http://www.kirupa.com

but it is not a link. I know this is probably a really dumb question, and would need like a minute of thought, I would really appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
