    Joining records using sed or awk

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We are archiving MQ messages and the messages recieved in XML format are causing the multiple records. To properly grep the file for researching, I need to have those records joined into one record. Thanks for any suggestions on this.

    for instance...
    1> <aaaaa>aabbccdd</aaaaa>
    2> <bbbbb>aabbccdd
    3> eeffgghhii
    4> jjkkllmm</bbbbb>

    I would want to join line 3 and 4 with 2 giving...
    1> <aaaaa>aaaaabbbbbbcccccdddd</aaaaa>
    2> <bbbbb>aabbccddeeffgghhiijjkkllmm</bbbbb>
