Actually, 10 min. after sending this message, just solved my own problem
(FINALLY!!). In the XMLOutputter.java file, I commented out these lines in
the escapeElementEntities(String st) method:
case '<' :
stEntity = "<";
case '>' :
stEntity = ">";
May not be an elegant solution, but seems to be working...

> Hi all,
> I'm desperately seeking help with a problem I'm having with

> One of my XML elements has HTML text in it. I'm storing it as CDATA:
> <FullButton><![CDATA[<input type ="hidden" name="year"
> value="2001"><input type ="hidden" name="make"
> value="Volvo"><input type ="hidden" name="model"
> value="S40"><input type ="hidden" name="trim" value="SE 4dr
> Sedan (1.9L 4cyl Turbo 5A)">]]></FullButton>
> After I do the transformation, the "<" and ">" are all
> transformed into < and >, screwing up the html
> formatting. I have spent all morning trying various fixes
> that I have found on various message boards, including:
> * using disable-output-esacping="yes"- this just causes my
> resulting HTML doc to have this declartion surrounding the
> appropriate text: <?javax.xml.transform.disable-output-escaping?>
> * using <xsl:copy-of .../> instead of <xsl:value-of>
> * inserting a cdata-section-elements="//styleinfo/FullButton"
> element into the <xsl:output .../> declaration.

> .jar file)- and I'm also using xalan.jar etc. from the Jdom
> Any advice is greatly appreciated!
