XML Node Types

Ok! I have been working on an RSS reader for Flash, and I am trying to get a dyncamic text to read a part of the XML file. So for instance, I do this:
(this is just a part)
<title>This is the Title</title>

Okay, well flash reads this as an element instead of a text node.
I put it in quotes, and it still said it was an element.
How do I make it into a text node?
