The HTML5 spec is clear that "CDATA sections can only be used in foreign
content (MathML or SVG)." [1].

However, the polyglot spec is mostly silent on those. Tidy generates CDATA
sections for inline style and script when it outputs XHTML. It would be good to
make it that those CDATA markers must not be used.
