The XmlWriter to which you want to save.

This method is a Microsoft extension to the Document Object Model (DOM). It is functionally equivalent to the InnerXml property.

The XmlDeclaration.Encoding property determines the encoding that is written out. If the Encoding property does not have a value, the XmlDocument is written out without an encoding attribute.

The following example displays the document onscreen.

public static void WriteXml( XmlDocument doc )
    XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter(Console.Out);
    writer.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;
    doc.WriteContentTo( writer );
