XHTML Tutorial - What Is CDATA
(Continued from previous topic...)
What Is CDATA?
CDATA stands for Character DATA, which is used to define a section of data that should not go
through the XHTML entity translation (parsing) process. In other words,
3 special characters: "<", ">", and "&" can be directly used in CDATA.
They will not be "parsed".
CDATA must starts with "<![CDATA[" and ends with "]]>".
Here are some good examples:
<![CDATA[Adam & Eve]]>
Sample XHTML code:
<p>1 2 1</p>
<p>1 3 3 1</p>
<p>1 4 6 4 1</p>
