Yes, however it will only be basic HTML such as <b>, <i>, <u>, <br>, <font>, etc.

To do it with actionscript:
mytextfield.html = true;
mytextfield.htmlText = "The HTML source text here";

You can also use the property inspector. Select the text field, and there is an option to make it HTML text. Then, if you are dynamically loading the file you need to set the text through actionscript as above.
