Description: Currently, simpleRepresentation always use the getAsPlainText method for all return formats. This causes XML to break, as the text provided is not always XML and doesn't parse properly. I have created a patch to cause getAsJSON, getAsXML and getAsHTML to return the content as valid JSON, XML and HTML accordingly. Email me and I can provide the patch file

The SimpleRepresentation type was only intended to handle simple text responses - if you need to represent a resource in some other format, then you'll need to create a custom representation with the appropriate 'getAs' method.
