I assume you've tried a cast, and it didn't work?  It's kind of weird going from XPathNodeIterator to XmlNodeList...I can't help thinking there's a better way of accomplishing whatever it is you're trying to do.

You create an XpathNodeIterator from a XPathNavigator select:

XPathDocument Doc = new XPathDocument(FileName);
XPathNavigator nav = Doc.CreateNavigator();
XPathNodeIterator Iterator = nav.Select("/bookstore/book");

If you're wanting to go back, the Iterator.current property will return an XPathNavigator, which you use to find the preceding and following siblings. You can't safely navigate away from the current node using the XPathNavigator, unless you clone it first.  

If you really want to create an instance of an XmlNodeList class that contains the nodes in the XPathNodeIterator, then I suppose you'd have to create a XmlDocumentFragment, iterate through the nodes in the XPathNodeIterator, importing each one to the XmlDocumentFragment, then use the ChildNodes property of the XmlDocumentFragment.

You could create an ArrayList, iterate over the XPathNodeIterator and push each node into the ArrayList.  Then use the ArrayList as your repeater.  But the DocumentFragment is probably just as easy to do, and keeps it all as XML. Document fragments are basically just a lightweight Document object.
