RE: [xmlblaster] message payload affected by the transport protocol?...

huh... nevermind then, it's not that critical at this stage of my
application. if the server has CDATA support, then i should be fine.

No, the server won't touch it (only if you add a mime plugin and do it
with purpose), try this:

java javaclients.HelloWorldPublish -content "<Sometag

java javaclients.HelloWorldSubscribe -xpath //key

The XmlScript parser does it, we should add CDATA support to it so that
we are able to send:

     <key oid="1">
   <disconnect />
