don't know bout xml, but does it load at once, or in bits and pieces till it's complete?
might dofunction check_xml () {
if ( [xml is not loaded] ) { // don't know how to do that
trace( [some bit of you xml] );
} else {
clearInterval (my_xml_int);
// [do whatever you want when done loading];
}
}
my_xml_int = setInterval(check_xml, 10);and set the frame-rate of you movie really high.
Maybe that put's you in a direction?

you want the strings to pop up all over the place? Or organized?
you could use the FTree, works good
