    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.
