+Summary: XmlTextWriter.WriteRaw("") doesn't prevent xml declaration
+The following snippet behaves differently under Mono vs .NET:
+using System;
+using System.Xml;
+using System.Xml.Serialization;
+class C1 {
+	public static void Main() {
+		XmlTextWriter xtw = new XmlTextWriter(Console.Out);
+		XmlSerializer ser = new XmlSerializer(typeof(int));
+		xtw.WriteRaw("");
+		ser.Serialize(xtw, 1);
+	}
+Under .NET it displays: 
+Under Mono it displays: 
+<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?><int>1</int>
+The key here is the 
+Under .NET it changes the writer state to "Prolog" so that the xml
+declaration isn't output by the serializer. I'm not sure if this is
+documented anywhere, but I tested it Mono/CVS and .NET 1.0.3705, 1.1.4322
+and 2.0.40301 and the results are as described above.
+Without this feature I found it difficult to serialize the object into a
+StringWriter without the <?xml?> declaration.
