I suggest the following:

:1,$ s/ LANG=/ xml:lang=/g

   the reference being

Fragment of html included in the output should be cleaned up, for example
the <p> included in line 17 generates a well-formedness error making
the full piece unusable (a parser must not recover on those kind of errors).
The simplest (and ugliest) is to escape all html constructs in the
content  s/</&lt;/g  in the content may do the trick.
  <DIRECTIVE id="AuthUserFile</A>">
is not allowed, the < must be escaped even in attributes values.
  <IA REF="AuthDBMGroupFile/>
lacks the closing double-quote
line 64:
should be a closing declaration

  Basically there is a bit of cleanup needed before it gets accepted by
a XML parser. Maybe half an hour more of work :-)

I would also swap all these uppercases to lowercase, but it's rather a
personal taste :-)
