the getxml method used to get the xml d

I am new to generating XML using vb.net. I have a SQL database and have a stored procedure which pulls out approximately 700 rows and has 5 columns.  I use a SQl dataadapter and then fill the data in the dataset
exampl

Dim 1dataset as DataDs = New DataDS

DataSession.Fill(1dataset , New SqlDataAdapter()  {MyData})
I use
dim strXML as string
strXML =MyData.GetXML()
Now my strXML has my data in  a xml from. But when I  pass this to my service and see the data in view source all the <> brackets become   &lt; &gt; passed remain in XML format.



How do iget the data set in an XML format



Regards without creating a file locally. Any help would be appreciated.

Regards

You can use the System.Web.HttpUtility.HtmlDecode method to convert the encoded text back to XML.

HttpUtility.HtmlDecode Method (String)

Class MyNewClass
   Public Shared Sub Main()
      Dim myString As String
      Console.WriteLine("Enter a string having '&' or '""'  in it: ")
      myString = Console.ReadLine()
      Dim myEncodedString As String 
      ' Encode the string.
      myEncodedString = HttpUtility.HtmlEncode(myString)
      Console.WriteLine("HTML Encoded string is " + myEncodedString)
      Dim myWriter As New StringWriter()
      ' Decode the encoded string.
      HttpUtility.HtmlDecode(myEncodedString, myWriter)
      Console.Write("Decoded string of the above encoded string is " + myWriter.ToString())
   End Sub 'Main
End Class 'MyNewClass
