 Even though the existing format is valid and working properly, I found
 that the "ent2ncr" function will automatically change the HTML character
 entity references to numeric character references. In this case, the extra
 escaping doesn't seem necessary. I have uploaded a patch to remove the
 CDATA block and change to the title content type to text. Please test if
 it breaks anything.
