Just so you know, a CDATA section is for the convenience of
the document author, only. It saves you the trouble of typing
&lt; and &amp;. It doesn't really 'convert' anything; it just
denotes text-that-resembles-markup as being just text, not

Specifically, you want to transform a text node consisting of some text
interspersed with linefeed characters (&#xA; / &#10;) into a series of
alternating text nodes and empty 'br' elements.

I provide an example of how to do this at
