How do i read in xml from silverlight.
There seems 2 ways to do it where i add a xml file to the project or load an xml file from the same webserver using a webclient which sounds messy.

MY isue is how to set up the file and where to save it the file? The tutorials I saw didnt explain where I put the xml file to load. I am uisng VWD on my local PC and want to test on my machine first but how do I do this?

Dim output As StringBuilder = New StringBuilder()

' XmlXapResolver is the default resolver.
Using reader As XmlReader = XmlReader.Create("book.xml")

    ' Moves the reader to the root element.

    output.AppendLine("Read the first book using ReadInnerXml...")


       output.AppendLine("Read the second book using ReadOuterXml...")
End Using

OutputTextBlock.Text = output.ToString()

    <book genre='novel' ISBN='10-861003-324'>
        <title>The Handmaid's Tale</title>
    <book genre='novel' ISBN='1-861001-57-5'>
        <title>Pride And Prejudice</title>
