       XML::DOM::CDATASection -	Escaping XML text blocks in XML::DOM

       XML::DOM::CDATASection extends XML::DOM::CharacterData which extends

       CDATA sections are used to escape blocks	of text	containing characters
       that would otherwise be regarded	as markup. The only delimiter that is
       recognized in a CDATA section is	the "]]>" string that ends the CDATA
       section.	CDATA sections can not be nested. The primary purpose is for
       including material such as XML fragments, without needing to escape all
       the delimiters.

       The DOMString attribute of the Text node	holds the text that is
       contained by the	CDATA section. Note that this may contain characters
       that need to be escaped outside of CDATA	sections and that, depending
       on the character	encoding ("charset") chosen for	serialization, it may
       be impossible to	write out some characters as part of a CDATA section.

       The CDATASection	interface inherits the CharacterData interface through
       the Text	interface. Adjacent CDATASections nodes	are not	merged by use
       of the Element.normalize() method.

       NOTE: XML::DOM::Parser and XML::DOM::ValParser convert all
       CDATASections to	regular	text by	default.  To preserve CDATASections,
       set the parser option KeepCDATA to 1.
