flex 3 & actionscript people… is it possible to

embed html into an application?

I have an application where the user uses sliders to rate a potential employee in 8 different areas on a scale that goes from 1 to 5. After they’ve put their ratings in, and click a button, I’d like a new bar at the bottom to appear and show where on the scale of 1 to 5 the potential employee ranks.

I’ve gotten the sliders working, and i’ve found out the average. I was planning on making a single html cell and then using more html, show an arrow with a padding left of whatever percent the user ranked.

I just can’t figure out how to embed HTML.

I’ve tried using an <mx:HTML> tag, but i got an error. Any other thoughts?

flash support for html sucks ass.
Find another way to display your shit cause if you are anyway at all dependent on html embedded in flash, it sucks.
