Coldfusion escape a hyphen in coldfusion xml node

<cfsavecontent variable="objxml">
   <VehicleInfo Year="2010" Make="BMW" Model="328I SULEV">        
   <Sub-Model>CONVERTIBLE</Sub-Model> <Sub-Model>COUPE</Sub-Model>  
   <Sub-Model>SEDAN 4 DOOR</Sub-Model> </VehicleInfo>
</cfsavecontent>
     
         <cfset submodelNodes = xmlSearch( objxml, "/VehicleInfo/Sub-Model")>  
          <cfset submodelArray = []>
          <cfloop array="#submodelNodes#" index="Sub-Model">
             <cfset arrayAppend(submodelArray,"sub-model".xmlText)>
         </cfloop>

This is  causing an issue with the "-" in the coldfusion any ideas how to get around it?

The dash in the cfloop and in the cfset is being looked at as a range in coldfusion.

Any Ideas how to get around it?

<cfset submodelNodes = xmlSearch( objxml, "/VehicleInfo/Sub-Model")>  

That returns an array of "Sub-Model" nodes. So you don't even need to use "Sub-Model".  Just use:

        ...
       <cfset submodelNodes = xmlSearch( objxml, "/VehicleInfo/Sub-Model")>  
       <cfset submodelArray = []>
       <cfloop array="#submodelNodes#" index="currentNode">
             <cfset arrayAppend(submodelArray, currentNode.xmlText)>
         </cfloop>
