    XML value being turned into math formula.

      I am not using E4X, but here is the scenario:

      Okay, so I am bringing in a string with a value of 33E-30 for Train Id. Java is returning the following XML to my flex component:
      <eta>2007-10-30 05:00:00.0</eta>
      <interchange>Elkhart (testing)</interchange>
      <locationName>Elkhart (testing)</locationName>

      I then take the value and put it in a Value Object typed as a String. Flex then displays the following:

      It looks like Flex is treating this as some mathematical formula instead of as a string, even though it is typed as a string. Any ideas on how to work around this? I am thinking that it is happening when the xml is being read into the object.
