           Summary: suboptimal CDATA example
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5: The Markup Language (editor: Michael(tm) Smith)
        AssignedTo: mike@w3.org
        ReportedBy: davidc@nag.co.uk

the CDATA example at

http://dev.w3.org/html5/markup/syntax.html#cdata-sections

isn't ideal (if any use of CDATA is ideal) as it is an example of a completely
redundant CDATA section, the content has no < or & so the section isn't quoting
anything. A better LaTeX example would be a matrix, as that uses & as the cell
separator, so using CDATA there would save quoting them all as &.

(This comment should not be seen as a blocker for the next publication round,
it can be taken as a comment on the next release)
