Employing XML in the .NET Framework

The XML classes in the .NET Framework provide a comprehensive and integrated set of classes, allowing you to work with XML documents and data. XML classes in the .NET Framework can be broken into several groups: parsing and writing XML with the XmlReader and XmlWriter, validating XML with the XmlValidatingReader, and editing an XML document using XmlDocument. The XslTransform, XmlSchema, and XPathNavigator classes, support performing XSL Transformations (XSLT), editing XML Schema definition language (XSD) schema, and applying XPath queries.
