What data needs to be enclosed in CDATA tags?

If I'm storing data that may contain encoded versions of <>&" and ', do I need to store that data in CDATA sections or am I misunderstanding the role of CDATA?

In other words, during a transformation new elements may be created and the content of the new elements may contain encoded entities such as &gt; &lt; &quot; &#039;. The documents all use utf-8 encoding. Can anyone foresee any problems with this?

Thanks in advance.
