    CDATA XML element inside mxml

    leeng
      Hello,

      I'm getting mixed up on how the syntax to create a CDATA element inside the script block in the mxml file. I do this and I get a parse error:

      var tmpStr:XML = new XML("<![CDATA[" + notes.text + "]]>");
      xmlFile.notes.tag = tmpStr;
      results.text = xmlFile.toXMLString();

      I tried to use a back slash to escape the "<" and ">" but that resulted in some inconsistent behavior with the second line when I read back the xml file as on the mac it reproduced the CDATA block and on the windows and linux side it removed the CDATA tags. Any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks,
      Hoyt
