C# XmlTextReader encoding problem - Cannot read hyphens

Hi all,

I am trying to read an XML file, which has the encoding:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

I then iterate through the elements until I find the element I want, then I get the entire content of that element with:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. string content = reader.ReadInnerXml();
BUT for some reason this does not decode hyphens within the text. Then I view the value of "content", any hyphens are shown as ?. What can I do to either solve this, or strip out the damage characters.

Cheers, and thanks in advance.
