[jdom-interest] Problem parsing cdata

When running the SAXBuilderDemo if found that it strips out cdata from elements

on the following file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<!DOCTYPE Simple [

 <!ELEMENT Simple ( VerySimple?, ( MySimple | YourSimple ) )>

 <!ELEMENT VerySimple (#PCDATA)>

 <!ELEMENT MySimple (#PCDATA)>

 <!ATTLIST MySimple type ( MI | MS | IS ) "IS" >

 <!ELEMENT YourSimple (#PCDATA)>


 <MySimple type="IS" />


I get the following output:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE Simple>



  <MySimple type="IS"></MySimple>


I am new to jdom, but it looks like the builder strips out the cdata "hello". Why is this?
and how can i avoid this?
I am using the default xerces parser.
