I don't know what stylesheet you're using, because the HTML output of
<screen> using Jade DSSSL stylesheets is <pre> within <table> ... I
guess that the table tags are used only to set margins.

But CDATA is not a DTD "script" for output. :-) It's input for a
parser.  And the DTD decides what the character encoding should be
used.  And then the style sheets will determine what the output will
look like, using charset encoding information. :-)
