    £ symbol is showing up in my TextArea


      I put breakpoints all around and I see that the £ is my string.  But it is not displaying in my TextArea for some reason.  I don't know if my binds and stuff made it go weird or something.  Is there some sort of trick to get it to work?  I'm using Flex 3.


      Here are some code bits:

      [Bindable] private var selectedDeal:Object;

      <mx:Binding source="dgDeal.selectedItem" destination="selectedDeal" />

      <mx:FormItem label="Description:" width="100%" height="100%">
          <mx:TextArea width="100%" height="100%" text="{selectedDeal.dealDescription}" editable="false"/>

      dgDeal is a datagrid, so selectedDeal gets updated whenever a row is clicked.  I debugged and selectedDeal.dealDescription does have the symbol, but it doesn't appear in th TextArea when I run it.
