	But, the result of escaping the entire enclosed chunk of XML
can result in a very large increase in the size of the data. Using
CDATA and escaping just the exceptionally rare cases of embedded CDATA
will generally result in smaller objects. If it is "just as easy" to
produce something that is smaller, I would expect that the smaller
option would be preferred.
