I am pulling in an XML document into flash and it is formatted using CDATA as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<page>
   <textbox><![CDATA[test with line break<br />
thest with thelinlasdf alksdjflsdjf<br />
alksdjflj aldjsflkjsdlfsdf<br />]]></textbox>
</page>

However, when viewing the Flash movie in a browser there is double spacing between lines.  I have looked everywhere and can't find a solution to adjust the line spacing. Does anybody know how to accomplish this?

I believe it is showing the hard returns you have after the <br/> tags. Try putting the whole thing on one line with only the <br/>s as line breaks.

Also, you didn't mention what component you are displaying this in, but if it supports a condenseWhite property, you should set that to true. http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FlashPlatform/reference/actionscript/3/flash/text/TextField.html#condenseWhite

I am using CKeditor in a backend application and that was why I was having trouble trying to get the XML written to one line.  However, I had tried the condenseWhite before, but was trying to apply it to the imported XML (like the ignoreWhitespace) and it was not displaying anything.  After seeing the sample on the link you gave me, I applied it to the individual textbox before assigning the text and IT WORKED!  

Thanks again.
