        <Child><%= New DateTimeOffset(New DateTime(2006, 10, 6, 12, 30, 0)) %></Child>
    </Root>
output.Append(root)
output.Append(Environment.NewLine)

Dim dt As DateTimeOffset = CType(root.<Child>(0), DateTimeOffset)
output.Append(String.Format("dt={0}", dt))
output.Append(Environment.NewLine)

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString()
