I am not sure that may be the issue
When you are running from a web server Flash has a security implemntation
which only allows you to send and retreive information to the server that
delivered the flash file.
If you try to read information from another system (such as myurl.com) you
will find that the XML files will work fine on your local machine, but will
fail when you move them onto your web server.

In nearly all browsers this is the server which the HTML file contains your
flash file.
However at least IE4.5 for the Mac, will only allow you to send and retrieve
information to the server that contains the flash file.
For this reason it is recommended that you place you flash file and HTML
file on the same server.
