Can Flash utilize AJAX in non-AJAX browsers?

If Flash supports AJAX could we add AJAX support for Opera 7.5?

I don't know much about Flash though I know ActionScript is supposed to be a lot like JavaScript in some ways. I even have JavaScript on my site that directly interacts with flash objects.

So my question is this...does Flash support AJAX and if so can I use it to load AJAX content in non-AJAX browsers through the Flash plugin to insert XHTML code loaded via Flash's AJAX (if it exists) to be inserted in to an element on the page?
