HttpWebResponse - ASP.NET Web Services

When using HttpResponse, I'm getting HTML entities in the returned value: For example: // the httpRequest has already been sent HttpWebResponse httpResponse = null; httpResponse = (HttpWebResponse)httpRequest.GetResponse(); StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(httpResponse.GetResponseStream()); Console.WriteLine(sr.ReadToEnd().ToString()); The results (partial) are: &lt;?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"utf-8\" standalone=\"yes\"?&gt; The "<" and ">" are replaced with HTML markup. I'm sure there's a logical explanation that I'm overlooking, so has anyone have an explanation? -- Message posted via DotNetMonster.com [url]http://www.dotnetmonster.com/Uwe/Forums.aspx/dotnet-webservices/200506/1[/url]...

    Default HttpWebResponse

    When using HttpResponse, I'm getting HTML entities in the returned value:

    For example:
    // the httpRequest has already been sent
    HttpWebResponse httpResponse = null;
    httpResponse = (HttpWebResponse)httpRequest.GetResponse();
    StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(httpResponse.GetResponseStream());

    Console.WriteLine(sr.ReadToEnd().ToString());

    The results (partial) are:

    &lt;?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"utf-8\" standalone=\"yes\"?&gt;

    The "<" and ">" are replaced with HTML markup. I'm sure there's a logical
    explanation that I'm overlooking, so has anyone have an explanation?

    Default Re: HttpWebResponse

    HttpWebResponse does not do any content manipulation or escaping. If you are
    seeing escape characters, they were probably being sent by the server
    itself.
