Forgot to mention parsers are not obligated to respect whitespace and
newlines unless it's in a <![CDATA[ ]]> tag, though they usually do (and
they have flags to control this). It's like the <PRE> tag in HTML in
that respect. This may be signicant to you in the long description.
But either use & > < or <![CDATA[ & < > ]]> but not both.
