Missing reference??

I've got a C# web service that uses the "XmlDictionaryWriter" object as shown in the code below.  Using the object explorer I can see this is part of "System.XML".  But niether including the reference nor explicit declaration can find the namespace.

This gets extra strange because I have a second project which uses the same exact class, and "XmlDictionaryWriter" IS found.  What is going on here?  One reference is stopping my build.
using System;
using System.ServiceModel.Channels;
using System.Xml;

namespace Batch
{
    public class SampleHeader : MessageHeader
    {
        private string name;
        private string value;

        public SampleHeader(string name, string value)
        {
            this.name = name;
            this.value = value;
        }

        public override string Name { get { return name; } }
        public override string Namespace { get { return "http://monkey.sample.com/doc/2007-01-01/"; } }

        protected override void OnWriteHeaderContents(XmlDictionaryWriter xmlDictionaryWriter, MessageVersion messageVersion)
        {
            xmlDictionaryWriter.WriteString(value);
        }
    }
}

Hi,

Do you have

using System.Xml.XmlDictionaryWriter;

XmlDictionaryWriter is a class, not a namespace   = )

You need to add a reference to System.Runtime.Serialization. The namespace is still System.Xml though.

Solved by recreating my project as an ASP.NET website and not a WSDL project.  It appears XMLDictionaryWriter is not available in a web service project.  (No new references added)
