If the XmlReader is processing text data, it always checks that the XML names and text content are valid, regardless of the property setting. Setting to false turns off character checking for character entity references.

Character checking includes checking for illegal characters in the document, as well as checking the validity of XML names (for example, an XML name may not start with a numeral).
