#1077 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

CDATA chunk stripped

In the_content we strip ending CDATA strings, why? If no reason then we need to take it out.

This was done to prevent the_content() from breaking feeds' <content:encoded> contents. If the content itself contains "]]>" then it would close the CDATA section of the feed prematurely.

See revision 1.14 of template-functions-post.php, labeled "fixed multiple breakage possibilities with feeds".
