Does this mean we have to enter for all the values we need CDATA on.
suppost i have for SenderFaxNumber and ReceiverFaxNumber should it be
like this
xsl:output cdata-section-elements="SenderFaxNumber"
xsl:output cdata-section-elements="ReceiverFaxNumber"

We have had situations in which the user by mistakes enters some special
characters and the xml parsing at the other end failed.

There is a serialization option

xsl:output cdata-section-elements="SenderFaxNumber"

But why would you want to put a fax number in CDATA? The only effect of
CDATA is that the serializer then doesn't need to escape special
characters
like "<" and "&", and these aren't very likely to appear in a fax
number, so
it's just wasted bandwidth.
