CC-BY-SA text cannot be used on GFDL pages; the two licenses are  
incompatible. That's part of the reason why the WMF is currently  
setting up a poll about switching Wikipedia et al. over to CC-BY-SA  
(see the countless messages about this on foundation-l).

The only exception to this is that CC-BY-SA images being used to  
illustrate the articles are fine, as they're essentially a separate  
work from the article (i.e. the article text is GFDL, not the  
necessarily the pictures illustrating it)
