Writing the Xml Declaration Using XmlDocument

Dan
Is there a better way to include the XML declaration than the following?

XmlDeclaration dec
=m_XMLDocument.CreateXmlDeclaration("1.0",string.E mpty, "yes");
m_XMLDocument.InsertBefore((XmlNode)dec,
(XmlNode)m_XMLDocument.DocumentElement);
XmlTextWriter writer = new
XmlTextWriter(m_FileName,Encoding.Default);
writer.WriteRaw(m_XMLDocument.OuterXml);
writer.Flush();
writer.Close();

No, there is no better way to add an Xml document declaration to an
XmlDocument object.

Re: Writing the Xml Declaration Using XmlDocumentI was curious if someone would say that the preferred way is to use XmlDocument.WriteTo, passing the TextWriter as an argument. Or does it just not make a difference?

Dan,

I was primarily answering your question on how to get the document
declaration into an XmlDocument object. If the object is to get it into
the output file, then why not do:

XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter(m_FileName,Encoding.Default);

writer.WriteStartDocument();

m_XMLDocument.WriteTo( writer );

Christoph
