I have written a simple xml file that includes a tag with CDATA section. MS Internet Explorer opens the file without any problems  but when I try to build a Document object of this xml file, jdom throws the following exception:

java.io.IOException: Error on line 5 of XML document: The content of element type "tag" is incomplete, it must match "(CDATA)".
        at org.jdom.adapters.XercesDOMAdapter.getDocument(XercesDOMAdapter.java:125)
        at org.jdom.input.DOMBuilder.build(DOMBuilder.java:151)
        at org.jdom.input.AbstractBuilder.build(AbstractBuilder.java:95)
        at MyDOMBuilder.main(MyDOMBuilder.java:44)

The xml file is given below along with the DTD:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE myxml SYSTEM "MyDtd.dtd">
 <tag><![CDATA[ABC & DEF]]></tag>
<!ELEMENT myxml (tag+)>
