I understand CDATA sections; I'm just depressed and fairly cranky that people 
still consider them a worthwhile tool that deserves regular use.  Yecch.  To 
think at one time I thought hiding JavaScript inside comments to shield it 
from old browsers was ugly.

We'll all be doing it; a lot of us will just be wondering what genius came up 
with it.  It would have been so much more convenient if the language designers 
hadn't chosen to interpret '<' as less than and '>' as greater than, but I 
suppose it was an innocent mistake on their part...
