Default Disabling Links and/or Redirecting Links in HTMLLoader

Here is some helpful code for disabling and redirecting links in the HTMLLoader:

import flash.html.*;
import flash.net.URLRequest;
import fl.controls.UIScrollBar;
import fl.controls.ScrollBarDirection;
import fl.events.ScrollEvent;

//set the url of the page we want to load
var url:String = "http://www.actionscript.org";

//create a new htmlloader object
var htmlObj:HTMLLoader = new HTMLLoader();
htmlObj.width = stage.stageWidth;
htmlObj.height = stage.stageHeight;
htmlObj.load(new URLRequest(url));

//hide loader until the links have been changed
htmlObj.visible = false;

//setup listener to modify html through javascript after loading
htmlObj.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, htmlLoaded);
function htmlLoaded(event:Event):void {
	var hLdr:HTMLLoader = event.target as HTMLLoader;
	//setup redirect function
	htmlObj.window.redirectLink = redirectLink; 
	var numLinks:Number = hLdr.window.document.links.length;
	for(var i:int = 0; i < numLinks; i++) {
		hLdr.window.document.links[i].setAttribute("onclick","redirectLink(this.href, document.URL);return false");
	trace("Links Disabled. Num:", numLinks);
	//show html loader since the link have been disabled
	hLdr.visible = true;

function redirectLink(hRef:String="", pageUrl:String=""):void {
	trace("hRef:", hRef, "   pageUrl:", pageUrl);
	//hide loader for new redirect
	htmlObj.visible = false;
	//new link
	var newUrl:String = "http://www.actionscript.org";
	//redirect link
	htmlObj.load(new URLRequest(newUrl));
