Thanks for the confirmation. RevAppendXML also seems to be the only
builtin command that can handle the CDATA elements. The other append
commands insist on converting the "<" and ">" tags into "<" and
">" and there doesn't seem to be any way of escaping the literal
chars. What I find annoying about revAppendXML, though, is the
inability to append literal data into an existing node. Node creation
and appending of data must be done in a single step.
