I am trying to certain elements in my output xml wrapped in cdata markers, so I'm trying to use cdata-section-elements="myElement".
well it turns out that when the text in the element is not valid xml, it gets wrapped in the cdata markers just fine. but when the "text" in the element is valid xml, it does not get wrapped up. this is a problem for me, b/c then it means that when in the next stage my output xml is processed, doing an "xsl:value-of" on myElement will not yield the text that I want to be there.

I guess it's happening b/c I only told the processor that the text of myElement itself should be cdata, but once there's valid xml inside (ie. more elements), then it's a new element. (correct me if I'm wrong.)

so the question is, is there a way to wrap *everything* inside of an element in cdata markers, including child xml?
