XML in textarea problem

Say there is a form with a <textarea /> in it. Now we need to get some 
default data inside it that contains XML/SGML markup:
> <textarea>
>     <p>Blah, blah, blah.</p>
> </textarea>

How does one go about doing this, while keeping the browser from 
'freaking out' over entities or any other special markup that could be 
used?

In relativity, how could XForms address this issue?
