Hi all,

I want to know if there is any use of CDATA in html or CDATA is only used in xml so that xml parser can safely parse the xml document ignoring CDATA section?

Why should anybody write something inside CDATA section in HTML?

Please let me know.

regards,
Ajit

As HTML is not XML, it really isn't even an option.

As for XHTML, I've never seen it used, and have never had an occasion to even think of using it.

A quick google search yields this blog entry.

I noted using CDATA quite widely in some Ajax library. I even put a note for myself to start using it as well.
