At heart, the problem you are having is that you need a syntax in your results that breaks the rules of XML well-formedness, so the XML serializer that comes with your processor won't work unassisted.

David's suggestion of using d-o-e, or for that matter the idea of reserving a character and using a character map, are both ways of contriving workarounds to allow you to do this.

Two other options would be to (a) write your own result serializer, assuming your processor allows you to use it, which could for example pick up elements in a namespace and do the right thing with them, and (b) use the "text" output method in an XSLT post-process that serializes both the XML and the non-XML syntax the way you want it. While it's kind of bizarre to write an XML serializer in XSLT, it has been done.

But Liam's recommendation to run a post-process outside XSLT altogether may be simplest. And they all amount to the same thing.
