Any way to get around having CDATA in xml?

So i stand corrected. the <a href is screwing up my XML data.

If I plop a CDATA tag in the XML obviously it works fine. But is there any other options to keep that tag out of the XML file?

If I can somehow include it in Flash (which logically doesn’t make sense) that would be great.

Any idea’s? The XML is generated server side and I can’t get them to mod it.
