An XmlWriter that is ready to have content written to it.

While serializing, namespace prefixes are inferred from the namespace attributes in the XML tree.

For more information, see Working with XML Namespaces.

You can use this method to perform an XSLT transformation. You can create an XML tree, create an XmlReader from the XML tree, create a new document, and create a XmlWriter that will write into the new document. Then, you can invoke the XSLT transformation, passing the XmlReader and XmlWriter to the transform. After the transformation successfully completes, the new XML tree is populated with the results of the transformation.
