Oracle SQL - XML Builder [ was : Is this Impossible !!]

Here's two ways:

1) Transform the Oracle output using and xslt stylesheet and one of the xslt processors like XT.
2) Write a script for a text- processing program like awk, perl, or python to change the tag names to the ones you want and delete the ones you don't.  This approach would be fast and easy.

  I tried the Oracle's SQL - XML utility and it does what i want.  Except a few things.
  I generated the following XML file as a result to a query to my oracle database.
   <ROW num="1">
    <SPNAME>Huntington services Company             </SPNAME>
    <CUSTPERMID>123456789123456     </CUSTPERMID>
    <CUSTLOGINID>jamesb              </CUSTLOGINID>
  The ROWSET and the ROW tags were introduced by the builder itself. I would like the document to look like :

  <SPNAME>My Own Business  Services Company  </SPNAME>
    <CUSTPERMID>123456789123456     </CUSTPERMID>
    <CUSTLOGINID>jamesb              </CUSTLOGINID>
    <FIRSTNAME>james               </FIRSTNAME>
    <LASTNAME>Bond                </LASTNAME>

  This is very important because this xml file will be sent to the client who will "validate" it. Since ROWSET and ROW are not a part of standard message format we use... an exception will be thrown.
  Is there any way to customize the output from the builder so that it conforms to a predefined DTD ?
