I have an xml file that I need to edit using Microsoft Word 2003. Everything works fine but the CDATA section is lost and is converted to normal html. For example:

<Description>
 <![CDATA[
  <i>
 ]]>
</Description>

gets converted to:

<Description>
 <i>
</Description>

I want to fix some typos and grammar in the xml file so I am using this approach.

Is there any way to preserve the CDATA section while editing in MS Word?

You know, Vim (vim.org) has spell checking capabilities. –  amphetamachine May 4 '10 at 15:33
    
Yes I know but trying to find a solution for MS Word, the person who will edit it is a documenter. –  Samuel May 4 '10 at 15:34
