    can't dispatch TextEvent.TEXT_INPUT


      Am I missing something?  I can't seem to dispatch my own TextEvent.  I have a mx TextAreat that we need to capture HTML text on...only problem is that anytime a user enters a < character, its being assumed as an opening HTML tag.  I'm currently listenting to the Text Input events and preventingDefault if the < or > characters are being typed but I'm not able to dispatch a new TextInput event with the text property set to "&gt;" anyone else ever have a similar issue or have an idea as to why the dispatchEvent isn't working with the TextEvent?
