Issue has been reported in bug 16836113 -DOUBLE FORWARD SLASHES IN XML CDATA
BLOCK CAUSING TRUNCATION VIA ISCRIPT

Replicated this in our lab with peopletools 8.54.10 as well.

Replication steps are:

1.Create a weblib record and the iscript.
2.Inside the Iscript, use %Response.Write() to return the string and make
sure the string has "//".
3.Register the Iscript.
4.Display the page and check the returned string.
