To answer your questions, sXMLData is wstring. It is not UTF-16
however, because I load this string with results previously created
with IXMLWriter.

If it's not UTF-16, what is it? Also, I don't see how "it's not UTF-16"
follows from "created with IXMLWriter".

You were correct about the zero byte problem. This change to the test
code handled that problem:
CString s1(sXMLData.c_str());
CStringA s2;
int nUtf8Size;

s2 = s1;

This doesn't convert to UTF-8, but to the system's default code page. I
suspect you don't see the difference because all your characters are in
fact plain ASCII. You'll have problems when the string contains
international characters.

As far as I can tell, IXmlWriter::WriteRaw should work just fine for
you. Have you actually tried it before concluding you can't use it? If
so, exactly what problem did you encounter with it?
With best wishes,

necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925
