I found one post on this forum concerning a Flash frontend for Mambo (a PHP CMS). I'm beginning to find my way into this type of project, and from what I've read there are two ways to go about this.

One idea is to use strip_tags and gain only the variable/value pairs for import into the Flash presentation layer using LoadVars.

The second option would be to convert the returned page parsed as XML and import that into Flash, which sounds great but I personally have less experience with XML/Flash.

Does anyone have experience into either of these two methods or perhaps another way which I don't know of yet? I am hoping for Mambo specific info but any insight regarding the PHP portion of this type of effort would be appreciated.
