They are both perfectly good XML, but one of them seems to be in the 
form that xPression is expecting and the other is not.

Unless you have some kind of agreement in place (e.g. an agreed schema) 
that enables you to argue that your vendor is sending you something 
incorrect, you are going to have to transform the XML into a form that 
the xPression product can handle. XSLT is widely used for that kind of job.
