It does not look like its as easy as selectsinglenode. I could be wrong though.

XmlDocument xmldoc = new XmlDocument();

        <property name="index1">myvalue1</property>
        <property name="index2">myvalue2</property>
        <property name="index3">myvalue3</property>

To.... (notice index2 value has changed)

        <property name="index1">myvalue1</property>
        <property name="index2">myvalue2-MODIFIED</property>
        <property name="index3">myvalue3</property>

You should be able to do something like:
XmlNode node = xmldoc.SelectSingleNode("/root/properties/property[@name='index2']");
if (node != null)
    node.InnerText = node.InnerText + "-MODIFIED";

// save document, etc

Open in new window

You can also do it with InnerXml property also.
node.InnerXml= node.InnerXml+ "-MODIFIED";
