custom fields in XML

I'm sending xml off to the API (list signups).

I need to include a couple custom fields. What is the syntax for custom fields so this is submitted to CC and is viewable with rest of the collected contact info?

I have the same question. Is there a way to add a custom field to a contact through the XML API?

Occasional Participant

I found the answer to my own question. The format for the custom fields is <CustomFieldX> where X is the custom field number desired.
