class MyXmlDataDocument : XmlDataDocument {
 public override XmlElement CreateElement(string prefix, string localName, string nsURI) {
   //Ensure we are returning the base class implementation of element.
   XmlElement e = base.CreateElement(prefix, localName, nsURI);
   //Add additional code here.
   return e;    //Return the element created by XmlDataDocument.
