CDATA sections in W3C XML Infoset
Could someone explain to me why CDATA section start/end markers were taken out of the W3C Infoset? I was hoping to use the Infoset in writing the spec for XML Script, but the removal of these markers makes it very difficult to write an implementation of XML Script which is based around a DOM. Dealing with blocks of text which run across boundaries between text and CDATA section nodes is quite difficult. It is difficult enough when it comes to _selecting_ nodes using XPath. It is even more difficult when it comes to _setting_ node values (something that XML Script allows). Is there any chance that CDATA section start/end markers could be put back in? -- Richard Lanyon, Software Engineer DecisionSoft Ltd.
