Serializing XML Trees

Serializing an XML tree means generating XML from the XML tree. You can serialize to a file, to a concrete implementation of the TextWriter class, or to a concrete implementation of an XmlWriter.

You can control various aspects of serialization. For example, you can control whether to indent the serialized XML, and whether to write an XML declaration.
