In the .NET Framework 2.0 release, the recommended practice is to create XmlReader instances using the XmlReader.Create method. This allows you to take full advantage of the new features introduced in this release. For more information, see Creating XML Readers.
In the following XML input if the reader is positioned on the <a> node or any of its attributes, calling Skip positions the reader to the <b> node.
If the reader is positioned on a leaf node already (such as the <x> node or the text node abc), calling Skip is the same as calling Read.
<a name="bob" age="123"> <x/>abc<y/> </a> <b> ... </b>
This method checks for well-formed XML.
