I got this working:
§ utf-8 instead of utf-16
§ no spaces before the <?xml ... > stuff


DECLARE @XMLString XML,@newname varchar(5000)
SET @newname ='<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<CustomFields xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
  <IDValue>
    <ID>22</ID>
    <VALUE>Staging</VALUE>
  </IDValue>
</CustomFields>'
 
set  @XMLString = @newname
 
SELECT CAST(@newname  AS XML)
