Parsing CDATA - Macromedia Flash Data Integration

Am I missing something simple? The research I've done all say that reading cdata from an xml in flash is easy, so they don't explain how. Here's my problem. Node looks like this: <DDATE> <#cdata-section>2007-06-19 14:38:58.0</#cdata-section> </DDATE> but when I try to convert it to a string (mystring=xml.node.DDATE) I get the above (which I'm going to go ahead and p today for what I need). If I try to p xml.node.DDATE.child, .firstChild, or .text all I get is empty string "". I can't try xml.node.DDATE.#cdata-section because that creates a compiler error Any thoughts? Thanks....

    Default Parsing CDATA

    Am I missing something simple? The research I've done all say that reading
    cdata from an xml in flash is easy, so they don't explain how. Here's my
    problem. Node looks like this:

    <DDATE>
    <#cdata-section>2007-06-19 14:38:58.0</#cdata-section>
    </DDATE>

    but when I try to convert it to a string (mystring=xml.node.DDATE) I get the
    above (which I'm going to go ahead and p today for what I need). If I try
    to p xml.node.DDATE.child, .firstChild, or .text all I get is empty string
    "". I can't try xml.node.DDATE.#cdata-section because that creates a compiler
    error

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    Default Re: Parsing CDATA

    First, where does this "<#cdata-section>" syntax come from?

    The proper way to markup a CDATA section is <![CDATA[]]>. See
    [url]http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/REC-xml-20001006#sec-cdata-sect[/url]

    Using your example:

    var xml:XML = new XML("<DDATE><![CDATA[2007-06-19 14:38:58.0]]></DDATE>");
    trace(xml.firstChild.firstChild.nodeValue)
