Speaking of which, I don't know if there is an existing erratum or
not, but I find the language of section 2.4 to be ambiguous and
confusing. In particular, these two sentences seem to be in direct

"The right angle bracket (>) may be represented using the string
'&gt;', and must, for compatibility, be escaped using '&gt;' or a
character reference when it appears in the string ']]>' in content..."

"In the content of elements, character data is any string of
characters which does not contain the start-delimiter of any markup."
