XmlSerializer & XmlSerializerFactory: I’m sort of positive you aren’t insane.
A few weeks back I was doing some pokin’ around the ol’ web regarding reading XML from somewhere (database, file-system, the trunk of your car) and into an .NET object. In case you weren’t aware…it turns out .NET makes doing this type of work nothing short of trivial. <slightly off-topic background info> That is, if you had XML that you [stole from MSDN] that looked like this… <?xml version="1.0"?> <book> <author>Gambardella, Matthew</author> <title>XML Developer's ......
