Property Value

true to do character checking; otherwise false. The default is true.

If the XmlReader is processing text data, it always checks that the XML names and text content are valid, regardless of the property setting. Setting CheckCharacters to false turns off character checking for character entity references.

Instructs the reader to check characters and throw an exception if any characters are outside the range of legal XML characters. Character checking includes checking for illegal characters in the document, as well as checking the validity of XML names (for example, an XML name may not start with a numeral).
