Having dynamic html pages

I have a flash file (.fla) but would like a way for my friend to be able to update the content on some of the pages without having to rebuild the site.  Basically, I am looking for a way for him to just load anything he wants (html code) into a file (say outside.html) and then when the flash site is loaded and someone clicks on a button it just pulls that page (outside.html) into a box with everything he has done.  I have seen the following movie:

but don't want just text. I would like my friend to be able to do whatever he wants inside the file (outside.html as html source) and then flash just presents it inside the box.   Is this possible?  If so, how?

It's possible through the dynamic text box (you create a text box in flash and then turn it into a dynamic one from the properties panel). Then you have to enable html code for the textbox so that it will interpret the html code and display it as an html file. To load, you'll need to use actionscripting to load up the file into the textbox (a google search will yield a good number of tutorials about this). The only issue is that the textboxes in flash have limitations when it comes to displaying html stuff, though i'm not sure as to what the exact limitations are.

So, what would an example actionscript look like for when the person hits the button and calls the outside.html into a box to that is say 300x200 that is to be rendered as html?
