#7796 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Export doesn't enclose comment content text in <![CDATA[ even though people can include stuff that breaks parsers in comments

Description

It's common for people to link to stuff in a comment.

If you export a blog using the exporter, <wp:comment_content> isn't escaped using a <![CDATA

If someone included a url with valid url parameters in their comment text, e.g.,

"Yes, the release notes are available at our online forum:
http://www.intellij.net/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=274511&tstart=0"

It would break any parsers trying to import that comment
