Ah, yes, but people who edit their XML in a text editor probably would 
be capable of starting a command-line application.  What I'm
suggesting is that *something* had to be written -- either the simple
filter or full CDATA support for all DOM applications.  Full CDATA
support won (love it or leave it), but the other might have been a
little easier.

All the best,
