We successfully use flash movies that parse xml files in
Interchange catalogs of our clients.

Simply add the <object> and <embed> html tags to your IC page
as you did in the static example above. The url of the Flash movie
should be absolute.

Also make sure that the Flash movie loads an absolute url to the xml file.

That's all.

Good luck !
