XML DOM - The CDATASection Object

The CDATASection object

The CDATASection object represents a CDATA section in a document.

A CDATA section contains text that will NOT be parsed by a parser. Tags inside a CDATA section will NOT be treated as markup and entities will not be expanded. The primary purpose is for including material such as XML fragments, without needing to escape all the delimiters.

The only delimiter that is recognized in a CDATA section is "]]>" - which indicates the end of the CDATA section. CDATA sections cannot be nested.

IE: Internet Explorer, F: Firefox, O: Opera, W3C: World Wide Web Consortium (Internet Standard)
