Can you use XMLTextWriter to dynamically generate and display XML?

I want to use the XMLTextWriter to build and xml stream and then display or
pass the xml to another method. I do not wish to persist the xml. I am
using the Memory stream to store the xml but I am having problems extracting
the xml from memory. Here is my code.

Any suggestions?

public static string WriteDataToMemo ry()
{
Stream m = new MemoryStream();
XmlTextWriter x = new XmlTextWriter(m , System.Text.Enc oding.UTF8);
x.Formatting=Fo rmatting.Indent ed;
x.WriteStartDoc ument();
x.WriteStartEle ment("Test");
x.WriteElementS tring("string", "testing");
x.WriteEndEleme nt();
x.WriteEndDocum ent();
x.Close();
m.Flush();
return (string)m.ToStr ing();

This is the correct way to do it

Stream m = new MemoryStream();
XmlTextWriter x = new XmlTextWriter(m , System.Text.Enc oding.UTF8);
x.Formatting = Formatting.Inde nted;
x.WriteStartDoc ument();
x.WriteStartEle ment("Test");
x.WriteElementS tring("string", "testing");
x.WriteEndEleme nt();
x.WriteEndDocum ent();
x.Flush();

m.Position = 0;
byte[] b = new byte[m.Length];
m.Read(b,0,(int )m.Length);
x.Close();
return System.Text.Enc oding.UTF8.GetS tring(b,0,b.Len gth);

Cheers,
