No. It's illegal to have ]]> anywhere in character content except at
the end of a CDATA section. For example, this is not well-formed:
<foo>Illegal ]]> in character content</foo>
This is a holdover from SGML.

True, although I think it's simpler to just pick one quotation style
and escape a single character rather than trying to be clever about
using the "correct" quotation mark in each case.
