XML files

I set up a Power CMS installation for a client and it's working fine, although they've now sent me a bit of a curve ball. Part of the design of the site has a Flash-based scrolling news box at the head of the pages, with the content sitting in an XML file. Adding this to the cms wasn't part of the original brief, but the client is now saying they want to update this, so I'm looking for a simple solution which would allow them to update content without the risk of breaking something major.
I don't suppose that this is possible within PowerCMS, is it?

Unfortunately i don't see how this could be done in PowerCMS. The only way that i could see this working is updating the flash to read from the database directly instead of an xml file. So you create a content area with the xml content and then have the flash read from that entry in the database.

Thanks Dani, I didn't think there was an easy way of doing this, but thought I'd ask on the off-chance.
