How do I change page title from flash?

My website is created using Flash 8 (ActionScript 2) and because it has more sections, but only one HTML, I'd like to change page title from Flash. Any idea?

The only way I can think to do this is to take your Flash movie and split it into parts. Put each part on a separate webpage and make the .swf on each page link to each of the other html pages. That way you can set the page title in each of the pages by just editing the html.

Apparently (after a little Googling) it is possible to do this in Firefox - see here

but the post also says that this behaviour was dropped from IE due to security issues.

Thank you quizengine. I cannot split the Flash movie because of relatively long loading sequence. I tried to use getURL() before I asked here, but Opera displayed security complains and IE completely ignored it.

I guess I need to use ExternalInterface.call method to set page title by javascript, that might be situated in HTML, but called from Flash.
