xml and serialization


 I often use xsd utility to come up with headers for my objects so that I can serialize them.  The problems is that xsd does not always do a good job, expecially when you use inheritance, and the object which you inherits has sub-objects which are declared as arraylists...

My question is that how can I understand what xsd does so that I can do it myself.
Xsd generates alot of headers for all my classes.

Examples:

<System.Xml.Serialization.XmlRootAttribute([Namespace]:="", IsNullable:=True)>_

etc...

All are not so simple:

<System.Xml.Serialization.XmlIncludeAttribute(GetType(PipeLayData)), .....>

Is there any way that I can understand this xml thing so that I can type up the headers myself instead of letting xsd generate them?
