I *REALLY* detest that idiom. I've seen many people hurt themselves by trying to hand-generate XML; I consider it a very bad practice. Unless you're forced to do it in order to work with a downstream tool which has not been implemented correctly, I would recommend finding another solution. Any other solution.
