XML, numbers and punctuation not showing

I tried searching the forum and web on this, and I’m sure it’s out there somewhere, but couldn’t find it. I thought I was done with my project today- and at the nth hour, right before it was time to go home, sigh, - I realized that for some reason, neither the numbers or punctuation were showing up in dynamic text that was being pulled in via XML. Anyone know this one? I’m an XML dummy.
