Default putting loaded content in array

i'm building a site where all of its content is loaded in by an external php scripts and a mySQL database. My question is, how can i put all that data in arrays. when i use loadVariables i get something like:

title0=blabla&text0=this is my first text&title1=blabla2&text1=this is my second text&title2=blabla etc.

what i want to do now is make some sort of loop that puts this in arrays like

title[0] = "blabla";
title[1] = "blabla2";


text[0] = "this is my first text";
text[1] = "this is my second text";

or do i really have to learn XML now?

try it this way:
titles=blabla,blabla2,blablabb&text=first text,second text,third text&
flash code
ActionScript Code:
//once the file has been loaded:    var myTitles=new Array();    var myText=new Array();    myTitles=titles.split(",");    myText=text.split(",");    //NOTE: text is prolly NOT a good variable name to use.

also look in the library here or goto [PROTO]type and find brandon hall's re-write of the string object, it will really speed things up for the split function - especially if you have really big arrays.
what the hell was i thinking?
