What do you mean, "not correct"? If you mean that the printed document
is not the same (for some definition of "same") as the original
document.  However, I can't see how you derive specific expectations
for the CDATA node from that. *Any* added white space changes the
output, so it if adding white space means that the document won't be
correct, it is impossible to make a print function that is
simultaneously pretty and correct.
