I don't have control over the processor that I'm sending this XML
data to. :-(

If you can't do that, you need to write your own serializer.
Or perhaps you could output processing instructions <?start-cdata?> and
<?end-cdata?> and then postprocess the output to turn these into <!
and ]]> respectively.

Subject: Processing empty nodes in XSLT
I need to enclose the data in my XML in CDATA. Doing this for
nodes with data was simple.
<xsl:output cdata-section-elements="<list of node names>"/>
That was simple. Except that doesn't work for empty nodes.
For empty nodes I need <name><![CDATA]></name>. I've tried
various ways of doing this but I don't seem to understand how
to process each node of the input. I would like the solution
to generically add "<![CDATA] >" to all empty nodes.
