What you haven't understood is that the purpose of CDATA is to say "don't
treat the stuff in here as markup, even if it looks like markup". You've
said it isn't markup, and the system is taking you at your word.

Fortunately if you change your mind and decide it is markup after all, you
can use disable-output-escaping to tell the system of the fact.
