Hi,

You can use XmlConvert.EncodeName method to convert invalid chars to valid xml chars-


void Main() {
    string content = "\v\f\0";
    Console.WriteLine(IsValidXmlString(content)); // False

    content = XmlConvert.EncodeName(content);
    Console.WriteLine(IsValidXmlString(content)); // True
}

static bool IsValidXmlString(string text) {
    try {
        XmlConvert.VerifyXmlChars(text);
        return true;
    } catch {
        return false;
    }
}
