The character to use for indenting. The default is space.


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.
