Replacing escape character?

I have a string with the following XML and need to remove all of the
back slashes

"<ROOT><Person PersonId=\"56102\" /><Person PersonId=\"56104\"
/><Person PersonId=\"71266\" /></ROOT>"

I use

string newstring = cleanXML.Replace(@"\", "");

or

string newstring = cleanXML.Replace("\\", "");

But the back slashes remain. What is needed to remove them?

Thanks,
Brett

Both of those will remove the backslashes. How are you determining that
the backslashes are there in the first place, and that they're there
afterwards? If it's by looking in the debugger, this may be confusing
you. See
