Need Help Importing Xml into DataSet

The xml in question (or a small sample of it) is attached in code. I'm trying to populate a DataSet object using the ReadXml method but it's telling me that 'MacRoman' encoding isn't supported. Is there a workaround for this?
<dataset>
  <table name="dbo.someData">
    <column>GameNum</column>
    <column>EventNum</column>
    <column>TCIN</column>
    <column>TCOUT</column>
    <column>ISCI</column>
    <column>IMAGEID</column>
    <column>DATA1</column>
    <column>DATA2</column>
    <row>
      <value>3_416_det_pit_0809</value>
      <value>PIT60</value>
      <value>20:15:49:03</value>
      <value>20:16:11:28</value>
      <value>3_416_det_pit_0809</value>
      <value>1001</value>
      <value>ZETTERBERG SHOT ON</value>
      <value>PERIOD 1</value>
    </row>
    <row>
      <value>3_416_det_pit_0809</value>
      <value></value>
      <value>20:16:24:00</value>
      <value>20:16:39:11</value>
      <value>3_416_det_pit_0809</value>
      <value>1002</value>
      <value>NEW HIGHLIGHT</value>
      <value>PERIOD 1</value>
    </row>
  </table>
</dataset>

Try specifying the encoding like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<dataset>
  <table name="dbo.someData">
    <column>GameNum</column>
    <column>EventNum</column>
    <column>TCIN</column>
    <column>TCOUT</column>
    <column>ISCI</column>
    <column>IMAGEID</column>
    <column>DATA1</column>
    <column>DATA2</column>
    <row>
      <value>3_416_det_pit_0809</value>
      <value>PIT60</value>
      <value>20:15:49:03</value>
      <value>20:16:11:28</value>
      <value>3_416_det_pit_0809</value>
      <value>1001</value>
      <value>ZETTERBERG SHOT ON</value>
      <value>PERIOD 1</value>
    </row>
    <row>
      <value>3_416_det_pit_0809</value>
      <value></value>
      <value>20:16:24:00</value>
      <value>20:16:39:11</value>
      <value>3_416_det_pit_0809</value>
      <value>1002</value>
      <value>NEW HIGHLIGHT</value>
      <value>PERIOD 1</value>
    </row>
  </table>
</dataset>

I'm not creating the xml file. I'm trying to import it from an existing location. The encoding is already specified for me. Unfortunately, this doesn't help.

Perhaps try reading the xml to a string and using ReadXML() from that.

Or read the file to a stream or an XmlReader first.
