  but very clear from the Infoset spec, see
  [http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xml-infoset-20040204/#infoitem.character].'''
  
+ '''I think this is also related to the use of general entities - they are not preserved in the infoset either; see also Martin's comments on CDATA in the Wiki and [http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-xml-infoset-20040204/#omitted]'''

  '''[CL] I see a relationship with XLIFF: XLIFF allows you for example to extract/convert sth. like Java properties into XML (namely XLIFF). What you can do in order to avoid CDATA sections is the following: Use the XLIFF representation of your original format. The beauty of this is that XLIFF is on the list of localization tools vendors anyhow.'''
  
  '''[YS] Thinking more about this: it seems that we have 2 different requirements: one is to not rely on CDATA because of the problems it causes (no support for NCRs, etc.) and the other has to do with codes that are writen as text. They often occur in CDATA, but, as Martin noted, one could also remove the CDATA syntax and still have the problem.'''
