'Declaration Public Shared Narrowing Operator CType ( _ element As XElement _ ) As Nullable(Of DateTime)
The value space of an attribute or element that contains date and time content is closely related to the dates and times described in ISO 8601. When creating an attribute or element that contains date and time content, the attribute or element values are formatted per the W3C specification. For more information, see the NOTE-datetime W3C specification.
Behavior is lax when casting to a Nullable(Of T) of DateTime from an attribute or element. Even if the attribute or element value is not formatted exactly per the W3C specification, the value is appropriately converted to a Nullable(Of T) of DateTime.
