Create a .txt file and set it up like this (line breaks are ok):

&field1=<font color="#0000ff">Hello</font>
&field2=<p>This is a paragraph with some
<b>bold</b> text</p>
<font color="#0000ff"><u><a href="index.html">Link</a></u></font>

Save it as fields.txt.

Then put this actionscript on the first frame of the main timeline:


Have two text fields on the main timeline, field1 and field2, which are 
var names, not instance names. In the properties pane, select dynamic 
text, multiline, and render text as html.

Test move and you will see it rendered as html. Remember that Flash 
only accepts limited html tags.
