XML elements can contain text content. Sometimes the content is simple (the element only contains text content), and sometimes the content is mixed (the contents of the element contains both text and other elements). In either case, each chunk of text is represented as an XText node.

LINQ to XML developers will often have to write code to work with arbitrary LINQ to XML trees that they did not create. If you are writing code that has to work with LINQ to XML trees that you have no control over creating, you should be aware of certain behaviors of XText nodes.

When processing the contents of an XML tree at the node level, you should be prepared for multiple XText nodes to be adjacent to each other. Further, you should be prepared for XText nodes that contain no text. It is possible through LINQ to XML methods to remove the content of a text node. However, LINQ to XML does not automatically delete the node. The node has identity, and might have annotations, so LINQ to XML allows for zero-length nodes in the tree.
