XmlAttribute tag in C# - "Appending /"

Hi Guys,
I'm trying to attach a simple xmlattribute to xmlelement with the following code:

 XmlElement acct_name = xdoc.CreateElement("ACCT_NAME");
 XmlAttribute att = xdoc.CreateAttribute("value");
 att.InnerText = "GBSID";

In the output though it has "\"
<ACCT_NAME value=\"GBSID\" />

Can someone pls advise why this is occuring?
