XmlReader and LineNumber

P: n/a
According to the MSDN documentation within the XmlTextReader class for
..NET 2.0, the recommended practice to create XmlReader instances is
using the XmlReaderSettings class and the XmlReader.Create() method.
However, the problem is, the XmlReader class does not expose certain
properties that I need, e.g., LineNumber, LinePosition, etc. I would
like to follow Microsoft's recommended practices, but I'm not sure how
I can get XmlTextReader functionality out of XmlReader.

Should I instantiate a XmlTextReader object and pass this to the
XmlReader.Create() method and then access this underlying text reader
to obtain the info I need? Or is there some way to get the
XmlReader.Create() method to return a XmlTextReader object? Or should I
ignore there suggestion and simply create an XmlTextReader object
manually and not use the XmlReader.Create() method at all.

Thanks!
