The XmlTextWriter allows you to set this property to any character. To ensure valid XML, you must specify a valid white space character, 0x9, 0x10, 0x13 or 0x20.


Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0, we recommend that you create XmlWriter instances by using the XmlWriter.Create method and the XmlWriterSettings class to take advantage of new functionality.
