Interesting. I'm looking at content management at the moment, and using
a system that uses CDATA sections for HTML. (Don't even ask). I hope to
ditch the spec in favour of xslt. If not, you're probably right that
I'll be able to manipulate the content management stuff working out when
to output CDATA sections from the content.
