public abstract class XObject : IXmlLineInfo

This class is the abstract common base class for XNode and XAttribute. It provides some basic functionality that is common to both classes, such as annotations, and raising events when nodes have changed.

Note that annotations are not part of the XML infoset; they are not serialized or deserialized.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
