+Bug#: 53024
+Product: Mono/Class Libraries
+Version: unspecified
+OS: All
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Normal
+Component: Sys.XML
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Mono ignores <field_name>Specified in xml serialization.
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what 
+you are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+In .NET you can create a pair of public fields as follows:
+1). A public field named aaaa of any type.
+2). A public boolean field named aaaaSpecified.
+If you apply the XmlIgnoreAttribute() on the aaaaSpecified field, then 
+during xml serialization, the Xml serializer checks the status of 
+aaaaSpecified. If aaaaSpecified == true, then the aaaa field is 
+serialized normally. If aaaaSpecified == false, then the aaaa field is 
+not serialized into the Xml stream.
+This behaviour is documented in the msdn at: 
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Compile and run the following code sample:
+public class TestClass
+	public int integerField;
+	[XmlIgnore()]
+	public bool integerFieldSpecified;
+public class Deserializer
+	static void Main(string[] args)
+	{
+		XmlSerializer serializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof
+		TestClass o = new TestClass();
+		o.integerField = 100;
+		o.integerFieldSpecified = false;
+		System.IO.TextWriter sout = Console.Out;
+		serializer.Serialize(sout, o);
+		sout.Close();
+	}
+Actual Results:
+In Mono we get the following output:
+<?xml version="1.0"?>
+<TestClass xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
+  <integerField>100</integerField>
+Expected Results:
+In .NET I get the following ouput:
+<?xml version="1.0"?>
+<TestClass xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" 
+xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" />
+How often does this happen?
