Using the XmlReader class with C#

Some of the project files created by Cyotek Sitemap Creator and WebCopy are fairly large and the load performance of such files is poor. The files are saved using a XmlWriter class which is nice and fast. When reading the files back however, currently the whole file is loaded into a XmlDocument and then XPath expressions are used to pull out the values. This article describes our effort at converting the load code to use a XmlReader instead.
