The point was that conversions like ">" becomes ">" aren't
necessary if you use CDATA sections, only the one bad case of
"]]>" which is illegal in plain XML character data as well as
terminating the CDATA section, and so must become something like
"]]]]><![CDATA[<", which is "]]" followed by "]]>" to end the
CDATA section plus "<![CDATA[" to start another CDATA section
plus ">". There are other ways to do it, of course.
