The above looks well-formed to me and should not halt a parser. It is an 
ugly output nonetheless.

You will need to find out what the parser+version is; you will also need 
to find out what the correct xmlns value is for these elements:


xmlns is used for scoping elements in a namespace; use a search engine 
if you require further details on that mechanism, or buy the XML in a 
nutshell book by ER Harold. Working with SOAP without an understanding 
of that isn't advisable.
