I copied your XML into a text editor and removed all of the line-endings
except the ones that are giving you a problem.  (Actually I replaced each of
them by a single space.)  The result was a file with a line-ending every 256
characters.  Suspicious number!  So it appears that something in the
software that produces this XML is compelled to restrict the length of an
output line to no more than 256.  Or perhaps the output is sent to a file
with a fixed record length of 256 and then undergoes a copying that inserts
the line-endings?  I'm not familiar with pl/sql but possibly the problem
would be solved if you could insert your own line-endings, after each
element or something.

This is my XML document:
<?xml version = '1.0'?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="http://www.nbcakingston/customreports/xml-
stylesheet1.xsl" type="text/xsl"?>
   <ROW num="1">
      <NAME>Jane Austen</NAME>
   <ROW num="2">
