Malformed XML response

We are working with JAX-RPC and Websphere 4.0. The client being developed is written with Microsoft.Net. A particular SOAP response is throwing an error as the client tries to serialize the object. A further look at the SOAP message reveals that a 0 is being placed in the middle of a tag. We have seen a 0 used before to indicate the last part of a chunked message, but never in the middle. Anyone have a similar experience or wisdom?
