Since that may never happen with XML, you might want to hedge your
bets by learning the advanced echo (1) technology as well:

 $ echo '<foo>' > mydocument.xml
 $ cat fragments/*.xml >> mydocument.xml
 $ echo '</foo>' >> mydocument.xml

(That's assuming that none of your XML files has an XML declaration.)

All the best,
