How to create XML correctly?

Hi,

I need to create following XML content:
		<SalesInvoiceList>
			<SalesInvoice ReferenceNumber="2006033">
				<ReferenceNumber>2006033</ReferenceNumber>
				<ContactPersonReference xsi:nil="true" />
				<CustomerReference ID="15" />
				<RecipientAddress>
					<Name>Zwembad Varik</Name>

Open in new window

I've come up with following code, but that doesn't have the correct result:
  // declared a private variables:
  Level0, Level1, Level2, Level3, Level4, Level5, Level6, Level7, Level8 : IXMLNode;

  Level3 := Level2.AddChild('SalesInvoice');
  Level3.Attributes['ReferenceNumber']                := QFacturenRlz.FieldByName('ReferenceNumber').AsString;
    Level4 := Level3.AddChild('ReferenceNumber');
    Level4.Text                                       := QFacturenRlz.FieldByName('ReferenceNumber').AsString;
    Level4.AddChild('ContactPersonReference');
    Level4.Attributes['xsi:nil']                      := 'true';
    Level4.AddChild('CustomerReference');
    Level4.Attributes['ID']                           := QFacturenRlz.FieldByName('ID').AsString;
    Level4.AddChild('RecipientAddress');
      Level5 := Level4.AddChild('Name');
      Level5.Text                                     := QFacturenRlz.FieldByName('FullName').AsString;

Open in new window

How can this be done correctly?

I've read the examples, but it never goes to a level where it shows how to solve my question.
My code creates the following:
<SalesInvoiceList>
    <SalesInvoice ReferenceNumber="2">
        <ReferenceNumber ID="8884" xsi:nil="true">
        2
        <ContactPersonReference/>
        <CustomerReference/>
        <RecipientAddress/>
              <Name>
              Companyname

Open in new window


So it mixes up assigned values to nodes.

It should go somehow like that...

uses XMLIntf,XMLDoc;

...

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
 var
   Doc: IXMLDocument;
   Level1, Level2,Level3: IXMLNode;
begin
  Doc := NewXMLDocument;
  Level1 := Doc.AddChild('SalesInvoiceList');

  Level2 := Level1.AddChild('SalesInvoice');
  Level2.Attributes['ReferenceNumber']:='2006033';

  Level2.AddChild('ReferenceNumber');
  Level2.ChildValues['ReferenceNumber']:='2006033';

  Level3:=Level2.AddChild('ContactPersonReference');
  Level3.Attributes['xsi:nil']:='true';

  Level3:=Level2.AddChild('CustomerReference');
  Level3.Attributes['ID']:='15';

  Level3:=Level2.AddChild('RecipientAddress');
  Level3.AddChild('Name');
  Level3.ChildValues['Name']:='Zwembad Varik';

  Doc.SaveToFile('c:\temp\test.xml');
end;
