How do I use disable-output-escaping in conjunction with CDATA?

I tried this but it didn't work:

<Html><xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">
<p>This is the Summary section.

Two possible solutions:

(a) use the tidy utility to make the HTML well-formed

(b) use disable-output-escaping to serialize the CDATA content without
escaping the angle brackets.

Usual caveats about d-o-e apply, but this is the use case that justifies
inclusion in the spec.
