Arg, that's a problem because the new version had an important improvement
as to me : users no long need to play with the 'register_globals' and the
'magic_quotes' directives inside their php configuration or some '.htaccess'
No other way to fix the problem with the '<?xml' tag? Maybe can we use an
'echo' or a 'print'?

See for example 'www.arabvista.com': to ensure NN4 users are able to read
Arabic pages in a convenient format, they have to 'double-write' their html
