 <League>
 	<Team name="Seagulls">
 		<Player name="Bob" position="1B" />
 		<Player name="Tom" position="2B" />
 	</Team>

To add a new team to the XML:

Dim xml As New XmlDocument(kXml)

// Add a new Team to the XML
Dim xe As XmlElement
xe = xml.CreateElement("Team")
xe.SetAttribute("name", "Eagles")

// Add the Comment to the XML document
xml.DocumentElement.AppendChild(xe)

TextArea1.Text = xml.ToString
