No need for XML if you have PHP and MySQL

Also look into AMFPHP (or ZendAMF) for MySQL/PHP to flash.

If you use AMFPHP you dont need to create dynamic XML files. AMFPHP takes data from a database and sends it back to flash as an array. Saves you a lot of time.

drawback with this solution is that application wouldn’t run without the backend

Flash+PHP+XML is enough and safe for sites with a limited amount of information. I’ve been building CMS systems like this for my latest files and haven’t faced any special trouble.
This has the advantage to simplify the installation process (just upload a folder to server and eventually adjust some file permissions).
If you have large amounts of info and you need to make sure that it stays in a safe “place” you should use MySQL instead of XML files.

I just want to offer users a HTML / FLASH page whatever where they can edit the child nodes of the XML with great ease. I am a big huge fan of making all my XML files FULL of settings, and I am proud to say that everyone who bought a file that has XML never wanted more from it LOL :D

So that’s what I’d love to get for my buyers. A simple HTML or flash file, where a user can go, and edit XML settings without actually having to edit the XML via notepad/dreamweaver etc etc.

Well its going to be hard saving files without a back end. Javascript can kinda do it, but I think it requires ActiveX, yuck
