CE Data calls return Taxonomy Term ID

If you have Taxonomy fields inside your Custom Element and you make calls to get data for that custom Element using CEData, the Taxonomy fields will return term ID's. You can convert those term ID's using code like this:

     // custom element data
     data = application.ADF.ceData.getCEData("My Element");
     // returns taxonomy object
     taxObj = application.ADF.taxonomy.getCSTaxObj("My Taxonomy");

    <!---// renders the term name instead of the term id --->
