 Adding prolog information using MSXML 4.0 (April release) for a DOM document

I'd like to add prolog information to an XML document, but I haven't
found where they've hidden the information on how to in their
documentation.  I've resorted to appending the xml text into a string
along with the prolog strings.  Here's the code I'm using to create my

'Create a DOM document object for creating our request.
  Dim xmlCustQuery As New MSXML2.DOMDocument
  Set xmlCustQuery = CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument")

'Declare the xml node objects
  Dim rootElement As IXMLDOMNode
  Dim QBXMLMsgsRqNode As IXMLDOMNode
  Dim CustomerQueryRqNode As IXMLDOMNode

'Declare the xml attribute objects
  Dim onErrorAttr As IXMLDOMAttribute
  Dim requestIDAttr As IXMLDOMAttribute

  'xmlCustQuery.appendChild xmlCustQuery.createElement("?xml
version=""1.0"" ?")
  'xmlCustQuery.appendChild xmlCustQuery.createElement("")

  'Add the QBXML aggregate
  Set rootElement = xmlCustQuery.createElement("QBXML")
  xmlCustQuery.appendChild rootElement

  'Add the QBXMLMsgsRq aggregate
  Set QBXMLMsgsRqNode = xmlCustQuery.createElement("QBXMLMsgsRq")
  rootElement.appendChild QBXMLMsgsRqNode

  'Set the QBXMLMsgsRq onError attribute to continueOnError
  Set onErrorAttr = xmlCustQuery.createAttribute("onError")
  onErrorAttr.Text = "continueOnError"
  QBXMLMsgsRqNode.Attributes.setNamedItem onErrorAttr

  'Add the CustomerQueryRq aggregate
  Set CustomerQueryRqNode =
  QBXMLMsgsRqNode.appendChild CustomerQueryRqNode

  'Set the requestID attribute to 4
  Set requestIDAttr = xmlCustQuery.createAttribute("requestID")
  requestIDAttr.Text = "4"
  CustomerQueryRqNode.Attributes.setNamedItem requestIDAttr

  'We're adding the prolog using text strings
  BuildCustomerQueryRequest = _
    "<?xml version=""1.0"" ?>" & _

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
