           Summary: suboptimal CDATA example
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5: The Markup Language (editor: Michael(tm) Smith)
        AssignedTo: mike@w3.org

the CDATA example at


isn't ideal (if any use of CDATA is ideal) as it is an example of a completely
redundant CDATA section, the content has no < or & so the section isn't quoting
anything. A better LaTeX example would be a matrix, as that uses & as the cell
separator, so using CDATA there would save quoting them all as &.
