Data inside CDATA sections is passed to the app in the same way as data
outside CDATA sections.  Expat (like SAX) doesn't tell you whether where
CDATA sections occur.  It may provide this information in a future

If your document isn't in UTF-8, then you need to tell expat either by
using an encoding argument to XML_CreateParser or by supplying an
appropriate encoding declaration, such as

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
