CDATA in RSS title and description?

Does it seem to be a general consensus that CDATA within the title and the
description is widely supported at this point in time is a means to allow
users to submit data such as the word AT&T in an RSS title or description?
What are the known generally accepted pitfalls of using CDATA?

Thanks, that FAQ was helpful. As it turns out the XmlTextWriter encodes the
illegal characters for me so I need not worry about snippets of HTML
invalidating an XML file.
