I have the following for-loop and I want  sum of all strTotal to be stored in a variable as a number.
Thus far it keeps appending my value (i.e 0564 instead of simply 564).

var nodeFeeGroup = ViewRSDom.CreateElementNode("FeeGroup");

var nsSvc = Dom.SelectNode(Dom.Root, "Opt/Svc");
if (nsSvc)
	var sum = 0;
	for (var i = 0; i < nsSvc.Count; i++)
		var nodeSvc = nsSvc.GetItem(i);
		if (nodeSvc)
			var nodSvcPrice = nodeSvc.SelectSingle("SvcPrice");                    
			if (nodSvcPrice)
				var strTotal = nodSvcPrice.GetAttribute("Total");

			var nodeFee    = ViewRSDom.CreateElementNode("Fee");
			var nodeAmount = ViewRSDom.CreateElementNode("Amount");

			var textNode = ViewRSDom.CreateTextNode(strTotal);



		sum =  sum + strTotal;  //I want to sum of all strTotal to be stored

	nodeFeeGroup.SetAttribute("Amount", sum);
