That's what Flash 4 gave me

>GetURL('/folder/file.hml', '_blank');

In honor of this, I wrote:

Get URL("/folder/file.html") // with no other paremeters
and still no dice.

http:// worked but the target destination of this is going to be a cd. and
we want to assume that our clients are from a time without internet
file://folder/file.html didn't work.

Other ideas? This is the strangest thing I've ever heard of...
