No need for CDATA. Why do I care? I don't. I just want the content
to be <Markup>, and that code does it. I'm not sure what is so hard

So to summarize: Kevin thinks the user might care. Brett thinks the user
I don't think anyone is arguing that we'll end up with improper data in any
I agree that it's technically an outputter issue. But the outputter needs
something to go on. Jason suggested a heuristic where more than two escaped
characters resulted in the whole thing being sent as CDATA. Kevin suggested
a CDATA type to differentiate it from String.
Proposal number 2,002: Construct a PrettyPrintXMLOutputter. Call a setup
method that tells it to output all tags with the name "funkyHTMLcontainer"
as CDATA. Or, perhaps, using XPATH notation, all tags that match
"body/*/textChunk". Call output(). No change to existing object model.
(Hey, if this works, you can fly me to Eritrea...)
