Hi, im creating a presentation CD.

I am going to have a menu with a few buttons, the buttons will link to a website. However instead of opening the website in a new window i would like to show it within the flash animation itself. Maybe in a text box kinda thing.

Is this at all possible? The flash animation will be run in the standalone flash player.

I have worked a bit with it and got as far as getting the html from the site and displaying it in a dynamic text box... the problem comes of course when one of the webpages has tables - as the flash html doesnt support tables i beleive.

So i am looking for an alternative but am not really sure the limits of flash.

Any ideas? thanks

No ideas I'm afraid. What you are essentially doing here is asking Flash to become a web BROWSER and it was never intended to do that. Yes, MX 2004 supports some CSS, but that's not intended to take on the role of xhtml interpreter.

Esoteric Flash implementations such as DENG are pretty impressive, but off the shelf - I've never seen anyone render a complex contemporary web page inside of Flash.

Yeh i have worked ot what im going to do i think..... For the pages without tables i am going to parse it with php to generate html that flash will accept. For the tables i think there is only 1 so i will just do a popup window for that page..

Thanks anyhow, i thought flash would have better html formatting..
