xml cdata node
whooops thats what i meant, a CDATA is a simple text
node, just trying to get more info out of it if

David was mentioning that "some xslt systems have
extension functions to allow you to
execute a [xml] parser" with an extension function.
Does Saxon have an extension to do this and/or how
would one go about doing this?

I am not sure if I will ever use it, just curious when
I was looking at bringing rss feeds into flash.
