WriteXML need to be RAW

Hi,

I need to write a DataTable to a XML file.
Using WriteXML works fine but specailchars like ampersand are converted to & ...
How need I change my code to get a raw output & ?

DataSet ds = new DataSet("Employees");
adapter.Fill(ds);
System.IO.FileStream streamWrite = new System.IO.FileStream(xmlFilename, System.IO.FileMode.Create);
DataTable dt = ds.Tables[0];
dt.TableName = "Employee";
dt.WriteXml(streamWrite);
streamWrite.Close();

private void WriteXmlToFile(DataSet thisDataSet) {
    if (thisDataSet == null) { return; }
    // Create a file name to write to.
    string filename = "myXmlDoc.xml";
    // Create the FileStream to write with.
    System.IO.FileStream myFileStream = new System.IO.FileStream
       (filename, System.IO.FileMode.Create);
    // Create an XmlTextWriter with the fileStream.
    System.Xml.XmlTextWriter myXmlWriter =
       new System.Xml.XmlTextWriter(myFileStream, System.Text.Encoding.UTF-16);
    // Write to the file with the WriteXml method.
    thisDataSet.WriteXml(myXmlWriter);  
    myXmlWriter.Close();
