Text and CDATASection Objects

The Text interface represents text in the XML document. If the parser and DOM implementation support the DOM's XML extension, portions of the text enclosed in CDATA marked sections are stored in CDATASection objects. These two interfaces are identical, but provide different values for the nodeType attribute.

These interfaces extend the Node interface. They cannot have child nodes.

The content of the text node as a string.

Note: The use of a CDATASection node does not indicate that the node represents a complete CDATA marked section, only that the content of the node was part of a CDATA section. A single CDATA section may be represented by more than one node in the document tree. There is no way to determine whether two adjacent CDATASection nodes represent different CDATA marked sections.
