Appending a Doctype node using Microsoft's XML COM interfaces

Im building an XML document in C++ using the COM interfaces provided by
Microsoft. Does anybody know of a way to append the DOCTYPE declaration to
the xml file? Ive tried to get around the problem by creating an element
with the tagname "!DOCTYPE", but apparently, the boys and girls down at
Microsoft already thought of that (ie: it didn't work). From the looks of
things, I believe that Microsoft purposefully left this ability!
