I have this code to generate/formatting xml from content of a text box:

  Dim xmlDoc As New XmlDocument
  Dim writer As New XmlTextWriter("C:\Work\xmlWriterTest.xml", Nothing)   writer.Formatting = Formatting.Indented   xmlDoc.Save(writer)

Open in new window

It works well, but when i have for example a special character like (&) character i get an erro in LoadXml.

How can handle with this error or change encoding?

best regards
