I need to enclose the data in my XML in CDATA. Doing this for nodes with data was simple.

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"; version="1.0">
<xsl:output cdata-section-elements="<list of node names>"/>
<xsl:template match="*">
<xsl:copy-of select="*"/>

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.
