<i><![CDATA[1]]>2</i>

and

<i><![CDATA[12]]></i>

are equivalent from the Infoset perspective. Strictly speaking the first two
examples are not, unless you're ignoring comments ( like SAX ContentHandler
does for example ). Running all 4 of those elements through a SAX
ContentHandler would generate the same result.
