    mirrors dont rotate letters 180 degrees!? They flip them horizontally. Just set your text instance name to, say, 'myTxt', then use myTxt._xscale = -100 (make sure your fonts are embedded first though) - that would display the text as if it were in a mirror.

    I can tell you how to load details from text file to flash.

    1.) Create a Text box. (Dynamic Text, Multiline)'
         Give instance name as "myText".

    2.) Put following action script on you first frame.
         System.useCodepage = true;
         myLoadVars = new LoadVars();
         myLoadVars.onData = function(_data)
         if (_data != undefined)
              myText.htmlText = _data;
         } else
              trace("loading fails...");

    3.) Then create a text file in the same folder name as "mydata.txt" . Then enter the details which you want to show in the txt box.
