 I'm resolving this as NOTABUG because MS.NET behaves in the same way.
 In .NET 1.1 there is no way to load a document with invalid chars,
 although in 2.0 there is an option in XmlReaderSettings to disable
 this check.

+Perhaps I wasn't being clear, or I don't totally understand your answer.
+I have no problem with it not deserializing and loading invalid XML
+off the wire, that's fine.  But (without having checked whether MS
+.NET does this) it does seem like a bug that it will serialize and put
+invalid XML on the wire.  XmlSerializer will create an invalid
+document if its input has an invalid character, rather than either
+removing it or throwing an exception.
