Is this what you're looking for?
<quote href=" http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath.html#section-Text-Nodes">
Each character within a CDATA section is treated as character data. Thus,
<![CDATA[<]]> in the source document will treated the same as <. Both
will result in a single < character in a text node in the tree. Thus, a
CDATA section is treated as if the <![CDATA[ and ]]> were removed and every
occurrence of < and & were replaced by < and & respectively.
