    XML does not require that in a CDATA section: "<![CDATA[x<y]]>" is a
    fine way to serialize the character content "x<y". Another fine point is
    that the character content ">" can be serialized as "&gt;" or ">" in
    general, but must be serialized as "&gt;" when it follows "]]" in a
    CDATA section (because ]]> marks the end of a CDATA section).
