You can include custom information in content type definitions by adding special XML nodes. These XML nodes are represented by the XMLDocument element in the content type definition and can be accessed programmatically through the object model. A content type can include any number of XMLDocument elements. The contents of each XMLDocument element can conform to any given schema; they only need be valid XML.

For more information about using XmlDocument elements to encapsulate custom information within your content type, see Custom Information in Content Types.

The following example shows an XmlDocument element containing custom information that specifies which form templates to use in displaying this content type.

For more information about the actual information contained in the XmlDocument element, see FormTemplates Schema Overview.

  <XmlDocument NamespaceURI="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/v3/contenttype/forms">
