Sitemap is a regular XML file. You don't have to convert it. Maybe just define <?xml...> declaration at the beginning.

what about the line:
<siteMap xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/AspNet/SiteMap-File-1.0" >
I have another sitempa in the project and I don't want to get mixed

That is the xml namespace it features in many XML files what do you mean by don't want to get mixed?

Namespace declaration is fine however the sitemap file is always xml. Regardless of xmlns declaration. You don't need to convert it to validate whether it is correct xml. If you want to validate it against schema, you will have to add the xmlns as you posted before.
