I doubt that the DTD for a message allows you to put additional XML 
into a body tag, but even if is does..

Why would you want to put it inside the body tag? Besides that it's not 
meant for that and the DTD probably does not allow it, why not send it 
outside the body tag? Sure winjab doesn't do anything with it.. why 
should it? It doesn't understand your namespace. Only your own app has 
to understand it. 

The fact that winjab actually *shows* the XML you put in the body just 
indicates that either Winjab is buggy when parsing XML, or that you're 
actually not sending XML but a normal (escaped) character sequence.
