Hi Joseph - MarsEdit does include the preamble and it looks like your  
example but also includes content-encoding information:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Is there some context for why you're asking about this? Just curious  
if we can help brainstorm an answer to whatever is on your mind.
