Great Thanks for the help.

Only one thing :
I want it make it private so that it is serialized accordingly.

If its public it is on top of file which i want.


eg: NAME element before;

<Invoice>
  <NAME>NN</NAME>
    <TEST>
      <Title>1</Title>
    </TEST>
    <TEST>
      <Title>2</Title>
    </TEST>

</Invoice>
