How do I write a new animal to this xml file?

Best would be if I could use something like this:
            XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
            doc.Load(Server.MapPath("Animals.xml"));
public void WriteXmlFile(String text)

        {

            XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();

            doc.Load(Server.MapPath("Animals.xml"));
 

 
 

        }
 

-----------------------------------------------------------------

xml file
 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

<Animals>

  <Animal>

    <Type>Apa</Type>

  </Animal>

  <Animal>

    <Type>Gris</Type>

  </Animal>

  <Animal>

    <Type>Ko</Type>

  </Animal>

  <Animal>

    <Type>Katt</Type>

  </Animal>

  <Animal>

    <Type>Hund</Type>

  </Animal>

</Animals>

        XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();

        doc.Load(Server.MapPath("Animals.xml"));
 

        XmlNode root = doc.DocumentElement;
 

        //Create a new node.

        XmlElement elem = doc.CreateElement("Animal");

        elem.InnerXml = "<Type>Monkey</Type>";
 

        //Add the node to the document.

        root.AppendChild(elem);        

        doc.Save("Animals.xml");

Almost. :-)

I think it opens the correct file....in my project which is here
C:\Documents and Settings\MFL\Dokumenter\Visual Studio 2005\WebSites\WebSite\WebSite\Tenta1

and saves it here
C:\Programmer\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\Animals.xml

How do I mange to save it in my project?

you can specify the full path where you want to save file to
doc.Save(@"C:\Documents and Settings\mdarabseh\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\WebSites\WebSiteCSharp\Animals.xml");

ok that works. Just one more question.
How come it finds the file in the correct space when opening but when saving I need to write the hole path?

because when you read the file you use Server.MapPath("Animals.xml")
server.mappath give you server path within your website; but in the example i provided i did't add server.mappath method; you can do this if you want and its recommended specially if you want to publish your website on different machine or different folder in the hard drive.
 
 doc.Save(Server.MapPath("Animals.xml"));
