I have not been able to understand the reason why production rule [14]:

CharData: [^<&]* - ([^<&]*  ']]>'  [^<&]*)

is not written like:

CharData: [^<&]* -  ']]>'

- Why did the ']]>' have to be preceeded and suceeded by [^<&]* ?

- How would rule [14] behave with the following strings?
1) abc]]>
2) abc]]>def

Thanks in advance for any replies,
