I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

XmlReader is fast, forward only access which has a low overhead. XmlDocument has larger footprint and is slower, but has more functionality.

XmlTextWriter is the fastest way to write Xml files. Accessing can be done by the XmlTextReader. Reader is read-only and writer is Write-only.
