Not quite, though I think I've made this mistake in at least one of my
books. The CDATA section
<![CDATA[foo]]>bar]]> is parsed as the string "foo]]>bar", not
"foo]]>bar". There is no way to represent the three character sequence
]]> inside a CDATA section. You have to close the CDATA section, emit a
