XML Closing Tag

    How do I close an XML tag with out the the full text?

    When I write out the xml file, it's written like so:-

    <Document>

    </Document>

    I want the ending tag not to contain the opening tag wording.... like so

    <Document>

    </>

    I'm new to writing out XML, any advice would be appreciated.   

    The reason I want to do this, is because I'm writing a small app that outputs some data to be read by another application (which I have no control), when I remove the tag text from the closing tag it reads the file fine, with it, it doesn't.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can't do that. The closest XML comes is allowing you to open and close a tag at the same time:

    <Document />

    Otherwise you have to be explicit.
