[jdom-interest] Turning of entity expansion

How am I supposed to create my XHTML documents then?
There should at least be the OPTION to leave text verbatim?, for instance
what if you use CDATA, you'd be screwed then, not that I do however,
I always use entities (if " is an entity ;)).

There MUST be a way, surely, just a way to let certain text go out verbatim
because otherwise JDOM would be generating non-XML compliant documents
which would be pretty crap for an XSLT tool, XML generator, or whatever
description you think it should have.

Ok, so is there any way I can make JDOM output the sequence:


to an XML document???

if not then where is it's support for XML unicode character references



What WOULD be "good for me" with pertinence to this question?
