Gets or sets the markup representing only the child nodes of this node.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
Attempting to set this property from a node that cannot have child nodes, for example a Text node, throws an exception. Otherwise, setting InnerXml replaces the child nodes, of the node, with the parsed contents of the given string. The parsing is done in the current namespace context.
This property is a Microsoft extension to the Document Object Model (DOM).
InnerXml is not an efficient way to modify the DOM. There may be performance issues when replacing complex nodes. It is more efficient to construct nodes and use methods such as InsertBefore, InsertAfter, AppendChild, and RemoveChild to modify the Xml document.
