I am having problem with parsing CDATA section. I am using PyXml and minidom for parsing the xml document. 
  My motive is to get the data back in the same format in one string as it is writen in xml file. Here is the sample:
                check.. its cdata section
                 all data is printed in it s format
  put when I print all its childs using:
   print StChg.childNodes  #StChg. is instance to <StateChg> element
  It gives following output
  [<DOM Text node "\n">, <DOM Text node "\t\t\t\t \t">, <DOM Text node "\n">, <DOM Text node "\t\t\t\t\t chec...">, <DOM Text node "\n">, <DOM Text node "\t\t\t\t\t all ...">, <DOM Text node "\n">, <DOM Text node "\t\t\t\t\t ">, <DOM Text node "\n">, <DOM Text node "\t\t\t\t\t">]
  The output Shows it is text node but we had declare it as CDATA_SECTION_NODE.
  and also the output is not desired ( format lost and some data is lost), 
  Why its happening. What I have to do to get the same output as in xml with the format and indentation.
  Please,correct me, where I am wrong
