Ok , I find the solution, I will post it as it may help other.

it i so simple thaat i miss it ...

all I need it to do was to replace .

   MyXMLNode.InnerText =strtxt


 MyXMLNode.InnerXml =strtxt

"innerxml"  will format the node in the correct CDATA format .

result : <ldm1><![CDATA[testing cdata formating in node]]></ldm1>
