Is it possible to load a attached file via javascript?

		<script src=""></script>
			<script type="text/javascript">
			$ (document).ready(function() {
				 $.get("hello.txt", function(msg) {
					var textArray = msg.split("\n");
			var zufall = Math.round ( ( textArray.length - 1 ) * ( Math.random() ) );

			$('body').append('<p>' + textArray[zufall] + '</p>');

this piece of code is a random generator!

if I use it on a normal html-page, it works fine, but is it possible to use it on a confluence page within the html-macro?

"hello.txt" is an attached file.

I found a different solution for it:

I've got a page, that looks like this:


<script type="text/javascript">
var text = new Array(
	"hier steht dein erster text.",
	"text no. 2",
	"text no. 3",
var zufall = Math.round ( ( text.length - 1 ) * ( Math.random() ) );
document.write('<p>' + text[zufall] + '</p>');


and now I'm using this page via the include-macro.

The intension was, to avoid having the array on the same page, because it will get extremly large!
