One elegant way to do this is using XML serialization, but you can also build the xml yourself using loops and string concatenation.

I also recommend building the XML from actual DOM objects. This way you'll automatically ensure that everything is legal, and have a simple support for hierarchy.
You can see a sample of creating an XML structure and converting it to string here:

You need to code the xml fields though.
