hey all, i want to make a navigation menu in flash using xml. I have flashMX2004 Pro, if that helps. I would like to have a nice navigation with some cool tweens. How do i do this? This is what i would like my nav to look like

About us       Products       Services        Contact Us


and when you roll over, sub navs appear


About Us       Products       Services        Contact Us
  History
  Who We Are
  Personnel

Etc...

How do I do this? Say the XML File looks like this

<navigation>
     <mainLink>
        <name>About Us</name>
        <url>about.asp</url>
              <subLinks>
                   <subName>History</subName>
                   <subUrl>history.asp</subUrl>

                   <subName>Who we are</subName>
                   <subUrl>who.asp</subUrl>

               </subLinks>

          <name>Products</name>
          <url>products.asp</name>
     </mainLink>
</navigation>

I didn't put all the links, but you get the idea. How do i go about doing this????

thanx all in advance.

first of all, why an XML file?  are you planning on using the same data in multiple menu designs/layouts?  if not, then there really is no need...    

or are you just wanting to use a dynamic solution?

multiple menus in the design/layouts, and the dynamic aspect of it, cause menus will be added constantly.
