I really like using LibXML because it is w3c standards compliant. Tutorial @ http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2001/11/14/xml-libxml.html

You could print the XML directly... eg:
  open(my $out, "file.xml") or die $!;
  print $out "<xml><element key=\"value\">some content</element></xml>\n";
  close($out);

the problem (in my (humble) opinion) with printing it directly is that if you provide text content to a node, then it wont be escaped appropriately.

I agree, printing directly is not always the best solution.  But there are cases where it is useful.
