Remarks

During initialization, the .NET Framework XML serialization infrastructure dynamically generates and compiles a temporary class for serialization that is derived from the abstract XmlSerializationWriter class. XmlSerializationWriter is also implemented within the .NET Framework for serialization of DiscoveryDocument and ServiceDescription objects into XML documents.

You should not derive classes from XmlSerializationWriter. Instead, call the Serialize method.
