Example: Specifying the CDATA Directive

If the directive is set to CDATA, the contained data is not entity encoded, but is put in the CDATA section. The CDATA attributes must be nameless.

The following query wraps the product model summary description in a CDATA section.

SELECT  1 as Tag,
        0 as Parent,
        ProductModelID  as [ProductModel!1!ProdModelID],
        Name            as [ProductModel!1!Name],
        '<Summary>This is summary description</Summary>'   
            as [ProductModel!1!!CDATA] -- no attribute name so ELEMENT assumed
FROM    Production.ProductModel
WHERE   ProductModelID=19
FOR XML EXPLICIT

This is the result:

<ProductModel ProdModelID="19" Name="Mountain-100">
   <![CDATA[<Summary>This is summary description</Summary>]]>
</ProductModel>
