Because the next processor will do a regular-expression-search for
<![CDATA[. Of course, this is not good style, and probably not XML
compliant, but it has worked all the time.
Bob, I think you should make sure that the processors where you'll
send the document work with arbitrary valid XML (*); then you can use
any of the techniques which you are familiar with (SAX, DOM, XSLT).
(*) You should find this by testing; I'm sure Sean can supply test
cases which nobody else would think of :-)
