Subject   st: sample *.do or *.ado files about writing XML in Stata

I am trying to get my head around writing do files that will save
results in XML.  In particular, I would like to format lines on a table
and control decimal place output (e.g., 3.10 - where the zero won't
round out in spreadsheet applications).  I would be interested in simple
examples (i.e., preferable not long and complex do files).  

I have reviewed Newson's listtex command and Gini and Pasquini's
"automatic generation of documents" and Sajaia and Lokshin's
XML_TAB.ado.  Whilst these give some insight they either focus on
HTML/LATEX or the complexity of the commands are too much for me.  I
would like some baby steps here.
