You don't "need" CDATA for all style sheets. But, since the child selector in 
CSS2 uses the ">" character if you make use of that without using CDATA an 
error will occur.

Rather than try to remember when CDATA is actually needed and when you can 
get away without using it then it is simpler to use it routinely.

Maybe Wrox might even get round to producing Pro SVG one day. Who knows? :)
