Why is it within a CDATA section? CDATA is there to allow non-XML text to be
embedded in XML; using it to embed XML seems completely crazy, though it has
become highly fashionable. Apart from anything else, it falls apart if the
nested document itself contains a CDATA section.

Try writing a Perl script that removes the "<![CDATA[" and "]]>" delimiters,
to create the document that you should have been using in the first place.
