You will need to preprocess the content, I think.

There is no such thing as a nested CDATA section (just like there is
no such thing as a nested comment).  The first ]]> ends the currently
open CDATA section, period.  It looks like the generating software
gets around this, if your pasted example, is accurate, by inserting a
space; the nested sections end in ]] >
(bracket-bracket-space-greaterthan).

You could handle this in XSLT, but I think thatbs doing it the hard way.
