RE: Handling CDATA element
I'm afraid none of the tools handle this well. The sole purpose of CDATA is to tell the system that the angle brackets around <br> aren't to be treated as markup, which means that when you want to treat them as markup, you've got a problem. disable-output-escaping is one way around that problem, but it's messy. It's not clear what you actually want to produce as your output or exactly where your difficulty lies.
