XNode is an abstract common base class for the following types:

XContainer is an abstract common base class for the following types:

Objects of classes that derive from XContainer can contain child nodes.

System_CAPS_noteNote

An XAttribute is not an XNode. Attributes are maintained as a list of name/value pairs on an element.

If you are writing a complex XML application, such as an XML editor or a word processor that stores content as XML, you will often work at the node level. Typical activities when working at the node level include adding nodes, deleting nodes, transforming nodes, and iterating through axes that return collections of nodes.
