How do I do a select so that these items are at the top and bottom of my created XML?

Is there a way to pick up the top tag automatically?

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
<Document>

</Document>

to verify that your xml has the declaration at the top (version and encoding) and the first node is "Document":
XDocument xdoc = XDocument.Load(@"c:\temp\test.xml");
            if (xdoc.Declaration != null && xdoc.Root.Name.LocalName == "Document")
            {

            }
