no, you cannot load an html page inside of a flash movie. The closest method I can think of is to use a dynamic text field in which you can use basic html tags.

What you could consider is using Flash to call Javascript and open a separate window (pop-up) in which the HTML page you want opens.

You could use the same, or similar, if you are using frames or iframes on your site and target the page to load in those.

In fact, now I think about it, if you designed your page using iframes you could get ALMOST the effect you want - at least as far as the user is concerned. You'd have your normal Flash movie in the iframe most of the time, but load the HTML into it when needed.
