If it's not the case, then the serialization of a XHTML document
containing a <style> itself containing a text node stylesheet tagged
with <!--/--> will - if entities output is selected - output entities
for < and >. Unless of course, specific rules for that element
are added for the xhtml serializer. I have no religion here, but this
issue is currently a blocker for BlueGriffon.
