XML parsing delirium

P: 4
Hi all!

I'm pretty mad about this... dont know what is going on.

Im parsing XML file that looks like this:

__<item att="something">text<item>
__<item att="something">text<item>
__<item att="something">text <span class="some">inside text</span> text<item>

its because "inside text" needs to have other color than text outside span.

im using external css file loaded into flash.

parsing part goes like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. function processData(thisXML):Void{
  2.     var titles:Array = new Array();
  3.     var texts:Array = new Array();
  4.     for(var aNode:XMLNode = thisXML.firstChild.firstChild; aNode != null; aNode = aNode.nextSibling){
  5.         titles.push(aNode.attributes.att);
  6.         texts.push(aNode.childNodes);
  7.     }
  8.     trace(texts.length);
  9.     constructData( parameters);
  10. }
an here is problem part.... aNode.childNodes gives me part <span class="some">inside text</span>

like this : ,<span class="some">inside text</span>, , yes its adding commas around span part....

if i trace whole xml file, output is without commas... so i assume problem is with childNodes part.

it makes me mad...

i've tried <![CDATA[]]> but it makes same thing and disable styleSheet on it.

need help... thanks
