Creating an XML string

In a recent project I have been working on, I have an input box that I have prevented users from entering in unapropriate words by using an array and a "for" loop.
This is what my code looks like.

badWords = ["milk", "juice", "cordial", "wine", "beer"];
mybutton.onRelease = function ()
{
     if (this._parent.txtBox.length > 0) {
          for (i in badWords) {
               if (txtBox.indexOf(badWords[i])>-1) {
          status = "No Swearing";
               return;
               }
          }
     }
}

How can I achieve this same idea, however using values from an external xml file?

Cheers

OBCT, there's another thread asking a similar thing, though he wants to use attributes, and I couldn't get that to work properly.

In a normal xml setup. ie.

<xml>
<item1>milk</item1>
<item2>juice</item2>  
<item3>cordial</item3>
<item3>wine</item3>
</xml>

you can do this.

myXML = new XML();
myXML.load("xmlFileName.xml");
myXML.ignoreWhite = true;
myXML.onLoad = processXML;
function processXML() {
      wordArray = new Array();
      for (var n = 0; n<myXML.firstChild.childNodes.length; n++) {
            wordArray[n] = myXML.childNodes[0].childNodes[n].childNodes[0];
            trace(wordArray[n] add " array items");
      }
}

so you're creating an array in flash from an xml file.
