Yes, you are right..
If I am lucky I can convince people installing this package so I can switch to it. Thanks a lot!

However, I have found a solution :-))

XML Simple puts nearly every hash as an XML-attribute. But not if its pointing to another hash, example
:

$tdata->{'TABLE-CAPTION'} = {'ID' => $_id, 'LONG-NAME' => {content => +'Test results'}};
Using content will create another XML-tag and not an attribute. But for using this I had to configure XML-Simple like this.
my $xmlParser = new XML::Simple( RootName => 'TABLE', KeepRoot=>1, ValueAttr=>{ 'TABLE-CAPTION' => 'ID', 'ContentKey' => 'content', }
Now its working fine, look at this: ^^
P>Testresults:</P><TABLE> <TABLE-CAPTION ID="ID42.401123046875"> <LONG-NAME>Testresults</LONG-NAME> </TABLE-CAPTION> <TGROUP COLS="4"> <COLSPEC COLNAME="test-id" COLNUM="0" COLWIDTH="1.00*" /> <COLSPEC COLNAME="status" COLNUM="1" COLWIDTH="1.00*" /> <COLSPEC COLNAME="test-spec" COLNUM="2" COLWIDTH="1.00*" /> <COLSPEC COLNAME="requirement-ids" COLNUM="3" COLWIDTH="1.00*" /> <TBODY> <ROW> <ENTRY COLNAME="test-id"> ...

Thank you very much for all your hints and tips!

Best regards!!
