I use xmerl:export_simple([My_Tree], xmerl_xml) as well as
xmerl:export_simple([My_Tree], xmerl_xml, [{prolog, [My_Prolog_String]}]) in
production code.

It is documented as part of the xmerl user guide in section 1.5 Example:
Create XML Out Of Arbitrary Data (at least in R12B, haven't yet managed to
upgrade to R13 yet).
