To write a string to a file,
Dim writer As New System.IO.StreamWriter("c:\data.xml",False,System.Text.Encoding.UTF8)

System.IO.StreamWriter writer = new System.IO.StreamWriter(@"c:\data.xml",false, System.Text.Encoding.UTF8);

If you want to validate the Xml, then using the XmlDocument would be an easy way. If you are already using the XmlDocument then you just save as Rejo as indicated. If you do not want to validate the nodes for whatever reason and are not using the XmlDocument and want performance (Web Services can be slow at times), then the simple use of the StreamWriter will just write your string into the file.
