I always suspect that software that blindly wraps everything in CDATA
sections regardless of its content is probably not bothering to check
whether the text contains "]]>".
But as other current threads show, there are a lot of folks out there,
including some who work for absurdly profitable software companies, who
reckon that if it works 99.99% of the time, that's good enough.
