Character Encoding of XML Names and Conversion of XML Data Types 

The XmlConvert is a support class that encodes and decodes names as well as converts data types. The XmlConvert class is functionally equivalent to the System.Convert class, but with a partiality to the XML standards. The type system is based on the XML Schema definition language (XSD) schema type, and the values returned are always locale-independent.
