Remove Preceeding Characters in XML string

I'd like to delete the first 16 characters of a text field from an xml file. I thought of replacing the first 16 characters with a blank but this stops the script.

Right now the page displays a catalog code like this: 23_99IBM_230_13_AJ

I'd like to just show the AJ.

Is there a better method?

//This needs to stay as is:

try { document.write(x[i].getElementsByTagName("CatalogCode")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue); } catch(e){}; 

//This needs to remove the first 16 characters:

x.replaceData(0,16,"");

try { document.write(x[ i ].getElementsByTagName("CatalogCode")[0].childNodes[0].nodeValue).substr(16); } catch(e){};
