  Thanks to the great work of Dan Schaffer, and gentle and not so gentle
reminders from him and Kevin Regan over the months, JDOM now has full
support for CDATA. Yup, it's in there, and will be part of Beta 5. Check
out CVS. It involved adding a new class, org.jdom.CDATA, as well as
changes to DOMBuilder, SAXBuilder, XMLOutputter, and DOMOutputter. So it
works for DOM structures as well as the normal means of handling JDOM.

There is a sample in samples/ called cdata.xml - run 

build clean
build samples

and then you can run SAXBuilderDemo on samples/cdata.xml and see the
CDATA section work.

Very cool - kudos to Dan for keeping this going, and making mods when I
changed CVS all over this weekend ;-)
