Basing the Semantic Web stack on XML promised to introduce a lot of advantages by reusing tools and expertise. In general, these promises have not been fulfilled. In this paper we describe a method that re-uses existing standards creatively in order to provide a guaranteed serialization of an RDF graph that can again be used easily with widely spread XML tools and techniques like SAX, DOM, or XSLT. We provide a proof-of-concept implementation and provide a use case to illustrate the advantages of our approach. Alternative approaches are discussed and compared.
