Default usage of cdata

Hello all,

my original xml contains the following item
<AdvrtCampaignurl>http://www.goldenpages.be/sttec3detailssearch.ds?detailsListingId=1529207&lo cale=nl_BE&headingNumber=7880&adtype=cms&adrecip=g oogle&adcamp=10114977</AdvrtCampaignurl>

how can i say in my xslt that when he transforms this item that the contents of this item has to be placed inside a cdata section.
The result of the above tag then should be
<NewUrl><![CDATA[http://www.goldenpages.be/sttec3detailssearch.ds?detailsListingId=1529207&lo cale=nl_BE&headingNumber=7880&adtype=cms&adrecip=g oogle&adcamp=10114977]]></NewUrl>

When i tried to do it, it failed. I created two variables, like this:
<xsl:variable name="x1" select="![CDATA["/> <xsl:variable name="x2" select="]]"/>
and after that i tried to concat like this:
<NewUrl><xsl:value-of select="concat($x1,campaignurl,$x2)"/></NewUrl>

Any idea's ??

Greetings and thanks in advance.

Do remember the distinction between transformation and serialization. The transformation creates nodes in a result tree, the serializer turns the result tree into XML markup.

You can't put a CDATA section in the result tree, because there's no such thing in the XSLT/XPath data model.

You can however request the serializer to insert CDATA sections for the contents of any given element, by

<xsl:output method="xml" cdata-section-elements="NewUrl"/>
