    // Create an instance of the DataContractSerializer 
    // specifying the type, and name and  
    // namespace as XmlDictionaryString objects. 

    // Create an XmlDictionary and add values to it.
    XmlDictionary d = new XmlDictionary();
    XmlDictionaryString name_value = d.Add("Customer");
    XmlDictionaryString ns_value = d.Add("http://www.contoso.com");

    // Create the serializer.
    DataContractSerializer ser =
        new DataContractSerializer(
        typeof(Person),
        name_value,
        ns_value);
