    Flex's coding of XML from Rails driving me crazy

    Vancouver_Charles331
      Hi,

      I'm using flex builder with a rails backend. I communicate using httpservices and their XML. Ruby sends me back xml with attributes which have underscores in them, for example post_count. Flex seems to convert these underscores to dashes. "post-count" At least this is what I see when I inspect the collections using debug.

      I'm wondering why would flex convert underscores in a name to dashes, and if and how I could solve this problem. It's driving me nuts!

      I was also wondering if anyone knows the most efficient and common way of communicating to a rails backend, is my method the easiest?

      Thanks for reading
      Charles
