Flash Actionscript2 developer needed to provide working example of a .fla and as2 using the FlashML as2 code library to display html files which comprise Tables, CSS stylesheets, font control, images and other basic html support in a Flash movie.
Actionscript must be AS2 and .fla must be to suit flash 6 with as2 option enabled (ie Flash MX 2004 is what we want to use to build the swfs with).
FlashML is an opensource AS2 code library by Designrealm for displaying html in flash developed in 2004/5 that appears to provide what we need however the project's web has fallen into disrepair and while the all of the .as for the lib are still around, we can find no documentation or examples of calling the objects it provides and this is where our guys are stuck. We may consider an alternative freeware/opensource equivalent to FlashML as an option.
You will need to have a look at the FlashML .as code and then produce a working .fla and .as example that uses the FlashML objects and when given a html filename pulls the file in and displays as a web page in a clip (one of the FlashML functions provides this capability).
This should give us enough of a head start for our own flash guys (who have basic but limited actionscript knowledge) to get it working enough to assess whether FlashML would be useful going forward.
Please note the Flash version 6 (or 6r65 optimised) requirement above, a flash7 or greater .fla wont work with the target player, you must test in Flash MX 2004.

Unfortunately the only page we've found that has detailed documentation and examples is this one [url removed, login to view] but [url removed, login to view] now points to local loopback :(
You may have better sleuth skills in finding the documentation and examples than we have, so if you find them and can build, run and supply the standard examples then we will accept this outcome as good for payment also.
We are also first timers at [url removed, login to view] so apologies if there's something you need that has been forgotten.
