Yep, three:

1. Use namespaces (seriously!)
2. Encode '<', '>', etc using entities
3. Enclose the HTML CDATA sections

Problems with each solution:

1. This is OK if you are sure that the HTML is valid and well formed
2. What else would you have to encode? (HTML entities?)
3. Maybe some whitespace issues

Seems like number 3 would be a good way to go.
