You can use <![CDATA[ stuff like < and & not special here ]]>


now if ]]> occurs in your input you must escape it. E.g. to put <[[]]>
into a string, you might try

<![CDATA[ this is <[[]]> a space-ship]]>
but that does not work. Instead, you must write,
<![CDATA[ this is <[[]]>]]<![CDATA[> a space-ship]]>
which I am sure you will agree is clearer.

With XSLT, you might find it easier to include an external
text file, using unparsed-text(), assuming you are using XSLT 2.
