Write XML to the output stream from an ASP.NET web site

I have an ASP.NET web site using VB.NET and I would like to dump XML to the output stream.  For example,

Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    dim dataset1 as New Data.DataSet=getbudgets()
    response.Write(dataset1 as xml)           'this is the part that doesn't work
End Sub





I have to think this can be done since an ASP.NET XML web service consists of functions like

<WebMethod()> _
    Public Function getSystemLog(ByVal FromDate As Date, ByVal ToDate As Date) As SystemLogEntryType()
        Dim retval(1) As SystemLogEntryType

and they spit out XML

Great!  By any chance, do you know how to do this for an arbitrary object type?

For example,

class DataType

public ID as long
public Name as string
public Description as string
...

end class
