CDATA entries are only | terminated by </[a-z] better you all check 3.2: ----- The PRE element can be used to include preformatted text. User agents render this in a fixed pitch font, preserving spacing associated with white space characters such as space and newline characters. Automatic word-wrap should be disabled within PRE elements. Note that the SGML standard requires that the parser remove a newline immediately following the start tag or immediately preceding the end tag. PRE has the same content model as paragraphs, excluding images and elements that produce changes in font size, e.g. IMG, BIG, SMALL, SUB, SUP and FONT. --- It seems to be that PRE is just a special case of the other block elements... nowhere was CDATA mentioned... I instead like the fact of "SGML requires that the parser remove a newline immediately following the start tag ..." because I don't know of a browser that does! Maybe I should double check the 3.0 versions of netscape and msie again?
