That's not going to be a very useful XML file for programmers.  To make 
it more programmatically-readable, you'd want something closer to this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>
   <prefix name="APn" description="3rd digit is a number">
   		<description>TAPR T-238+ WX Station</description>
   		<description>Martyn M1MAJ DeLorme inReach Tracker</description>
   <prefix name="APA" description="AFilter">
   		<description>SV2AGW's AGWtracker</description>
   		<description>Alinco DR-620/635 internal TNC digis. "Hachi"
