Hi,

I am new to XML, so please bear with me.

I created an application where I download XML files. Most of them are in the same format. I want to create a local xml file, but I want to remove the stylesheet section ( <?xml-stylesheet type="bla,bla,bla/>). How can I do that? And how can I write that to file on my computer? I want to add a XSD ref, can I do that?

Let me know if you need more information.
Thanks

Use system.net web.client.download data to download the XML file.
Load the XML doc into an system.xml.xmldocument and use the schemas property to play around with the associates schemas.

A, code sample below.  Currently untested, but shows the main commands required.

' Create a new WebClient instance.
Dim myWebClient As New WebClient()
' Download the home page data.
' DownloadData() method takes a 'uriRemote.ToString()' and downloads the Web resource and saves it into a data buffer.
Dim myDatabuffer As Byte() = myWebClient.DownloadData(remoteUrl)

' xmldata info xmldocument
Dim xmlDoc As new xmldocument
xmldoc.loadxml(Encoding.ASCII.GetString(myDataBuffer))

' add schema
xmldoc.Schemas.Add("http://www.blah.com", "blah.xsd")

' save xml
xmldoc.save(filename)
