let's see:

 // <![CDATA[<sender>John Smith</sender>]]> more stuff here
 some code
 some more code
 even more code
 enough already with the code!

Seems fine to me.. did you indent 4 spaces as specified in the http://meta.stackoverflow.com/editing-help ?

Because it's treating < as the start of a HTML tag (I had a similar problem). Print it as &lt; and you'll be fine.
