I forgot to mention:

Each "<" in the application data must be encoded
as "&lt;" in the XML. For example,

	<DATA>4 &lt; 5 and 6 > 5</DATA>

You can also use a CDATA section for text 
that contains "&" or "<" characters. 
For example:


Note that if any of your attribute values contain 
"&" or "<" characters, then they have to be encoded
as well. For example,

	<DATA company="AT&amp;T">...</DATA>
