true if the binary content read methods are implemented; otherwise false. The XmlNodeReader class always returns true.



In the .NET Framework 2.0, the recommended practice is to create XmlReader instances using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. This allows you to take full advantage of all the new features introduced in the .NET Framework. For more information, see the Remarks section in the XmlReader reference page.

The binary content read methods include the ReadContentAsBase64, ReadContentAsBinHex, ReadElementContentAsBase64, and ReadElementContentAsBinHex methods.
