I do not see a problem. Using method text, the characters will simply be outputted as the plain characters. Using methods xml and html will result in the appropriate entities (I mean &lt; &gt; &apos; &quot; and &amp;). Just don't use 'disable-output-escaping="yes"'.. :-)



If I'm storing data that may contain encoded versions of <>&" and ', do I need to store that data in CDATA sections or am I misunderstanding the role of CDATA?

In other words, during a transformation new elements may be created and the content of the new elements may contain encoded entities such as &gt; &lt; &quot; &#039;. The documents all use utf-8 encoding. Can anyone foresee any problems with this?

Thanks in advance.
