In general whatever you pass is interpreted as text, the same way a text
node is interpreted in the XML input (in the sense of "a text node in a
DOM"). No quoting necessary. Some processors allow you to pass other
things than strings, for example DOM trees. This is, however, highly
processor specific. If you mean by "certain types of text" XML, well, it
is just treated as text and not parsed. Therefore, again, no quoting
