The WriteValue method accepts common language runtime (CLR) simple-typed values. This allows you to pipeline simple-type values with minimal re-parsing overhead when passing data between XPathDocument, XmlReader, and XmlWriter objects. This ability is also useful when dealing with CLR simple-types and an XmlWriter instance. You can call the WriteValue method to write the typed value, rather than using the methods on the XmlConvert class to convert the typed data to a string value before writing it out. For more information, see Writing Typed Data.
