Writing formatted XML

How would I write an XmlDocument to a file so that each node is properly
indented and followed by a carriage return?

Using XmlDocument.Sav e(string file) produces a file with nicely indented
elements. XmlDocument.Out erXml returns a string without any formatting. If
you want a nicely formatted string (to display to the user, write to
console, etc), without directly writing to a file, you must use the
using System.IO;
using System.Xml;

public static string FormatXML(XmlDo cument doc)
// Create a stream buffer that can be read as a string
using (StringWriter sw = new StringWriter())

// Create a specialized writer for XML code
using (XmlTextWriter xtw = new XmlTextWriter(s w))
// Set the writer to use indented (hierarchical) elements
xtw.Formatting = System.Xml.Form atting.Indented ;

// Write the XML document to the stream
doc.WriteTo(xtw );

// Return the stream as a string
return sw.ToString();

Hello, I am writing to a .txt file. Lots of data, about 1.1MB. It only took less than a second for VB6 to do so, but it took VB.NET one minute!! I am using a simple fileopen and print. Does anyone have any ideas? I've noticed that .NET runs slower for my other programs too. thanks in advance for any suggestions.
