Could someone help me find the code to pull some simple text from an external website's RSS feed into a basic text box in a Flash movie. It would need to be in AS2 to fit with the website.

I understand I need to pull the content via an xml / php page under my own domain in order to get around the Flash security, but I still can't scrape together the right code for it to work.

Many thanks to anyone who has a clue.

Would anybody be interested in completing this work for me if we could arrange a fee?
I do not have the skill or time.

Is the feed you are trying to load into flash up on the web? I've worked with xml in flash a lot and it should be straight forward, just haven't done any AS2 in a while, but i think i have what you need.

Hi R.L.D.
[Sorry for the very late reply]
Yes the feed is on the web. I will send you the link to check if there is a way to get a personal message to you.
It is in a php page. It is a rss feed which has a quote as well as a short line that accompanies it. I would only want the quote so I would have to pull only that element of the feed in.
How does this all sound?
I'm watching this now so I will make sure I reply to any messages within a few hours.
