No, I only meant what I said.   If you're writing XML,
you're better off using tools that write the Real Thing
so you don't create interop problems ... rather than
assuming some marginally interoperable subset.

On the other hand, if the original question had said
that some subset was involved (clearly wasn't, given
the "CDATA is fine" followup :)  the answer could
have been different.
