    VB.NET form, ouputting info to XML file?

    Not even sure which forum to put this in, but ...

    I'm trying to use Visual Basic.NET to create a small desktop executable that will display basically a form. I want the data that the user inputs in this "form" to write to an XML file that resides on a webserver (ie has to save to an FTP site) when they hit "submit" and I want the info to add to the info already in an existing XML file, not overwrite it or create a new one. Basically a very user-simplistic interface for editting, deleting and/or adding data on a website (and the HTML pages I've written will automatically read the XML file and display the data in HTML format. ... but while I know a little about XML I know very little about using VB.NET. I've tried researching XForms but it sounds like it's such a new technology that only IE6 supports it, so I don't want to go that route.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for a tutorial or even just a library of code that I can use to figure this out?

    I've been Googling my arse off for weeks.

    These will be of particular interest to you if I understood your question correctly:

    Wow, lot to digest there, but at first glance that looks like what I've been searching for.

    Thanks!
