I am trying to bind an xml document to a dataset. The problem is the XML document  has special characters namliey html chracters. This Xml document will be used for updating and making changes to a product catalog-- so simply removing the HTML Entities isnt an option.

How do I pass an XML reader that expands HTML entities? I am using XmlTextReader.
DataSet DS = new DataSet();
                DS.XmlTextReader(Server.MapPath("countries.xml"));
				DG1.DataSource = DS;
				DG1.DataBind();

If you mean having something life the following xml, you could use CDATA. Anything in a CDATA element is interpreted as literal text.
<element><![CDATA[
  <div>
    <a href='http://www.google.com'>Google</a>
  </div>
]]></element>

Sorry, not what I meant. the idea is we have this product database that comes down as an XML we can edit the content of the XML and then push the edited XML document back up to the server. I was trying to use a dataset in order to do this but the current ml reader i am using cannot expand the html entities found with in the product descriptions and the like..
