Default XML to String in VB.NET

I've got an XML document object that I would like to convert to a string object. I'm trying to send the XML via a WinHTTPRequest and the .SEND method wants a string object to be passed to it.

I'm a big fan of C#, but I'm guessing VB is quite similar. Try WriteTo and WriteContentTo. You will most likely have to deal with streams to pull this off.

One way to do it if you really want a string is to get the XML into a stream (using WriteTo), and then reading the entire stream as a string (check out the various Read methods)
