Strings show as brackets with a 'u'.

Hi,

>>> n
[u'174']
>>>

Probably newbie question but not sure how suppress the brackets and
the 'u' ? I assume pyhon is telling me it's a unicode string in the n
variable.

 I'm using using Idle on winXP, activestate 2.7. Is there a way to
suppress this and just show 174  in the shell ?
A script reading data and assigns 174 to n via some regex. Links on
this appreciated - I've tried to understand unicode before, will keep
trying...thanks.
