Currently the XML writer class do not generate CDATA sections because usually it is not necessary. If you just add any data values the special characters ( <, >, " and control characters) will be encoded correctly.
Although I could add very quickly support to make certain tags have data as CDATA, I wonder if you really need it for some reason.

Thanks for your rapid reply.
I am trying to make my feed as standards-compliant as possible. As far as I can see the expectation is the <description> should be a short summary, preferably in plain text, while entire articles can appear in <content:encoded> normally using CDATA format with HTML markup.
I'm going by the advice from the validator at http://feedvalidator.org/about.html (which seems to give the same advice as http://validator.w3.org/feed/ )
