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.

If Namespaces is set to true, WriteName also checks that the name is also valid according to the W3C Namespaces in XML recommendation.
