xml cdata section
> I need to send non-parsable character data between applications so I hoped
> to use a CDATA section. Before I committed myself I decided to run some
> sample messages through a validator (rxp). It consistently rejects the
> CDATA section yet I can't see anything wrong. Short test example:-
> <?xml version='1.0'?>
> ]>
> <TEST><![CDATA[blahblah]]></TEST>
> Output from "rxp -xsV test.xml":-
> Warning: CDATA section not allowed here
>  in unnamed entity at line 5 char 16 of file:test.xml
> As I'm new to this (XML), it must be something I'm doing wrong. The XML
> Spec says that CDATA can occur anywhere character data can occur. Can
> anyone help?
> PS. Just tried <!ELEMENT TEST {#PCDATA)> and removing the DOCTYPE section
> altogether. The former passes the validation test and the latter passes
> the well-formedness test (rxp -xs test.xml)!
