Is the text in http://pvr.blogs.com/foaf.rdf escaped or just put in a 
CDATA block? I can't see any &lt; or &amp;

Regardless of whether it's right or not, we're trying to transport user 
entered text embedded in XML. Whenever we do that we face this issue. As 
developer's we get to choose whether to strip tags, but even that can 
get exceedingly hard some times, as in Dan's example.
