how to pass a xml text string as parameter to a web service?

I defined the the web service as the following:

public string SaveQuestion(string qusxml)
return "OK";

the parameter 'qusxml' is a xml text string. But in the client, I try to pass a xml string to it, it return a error like this,
System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to read request. ---> System.InvalidOperationException: There is an error in XML document (5, 28). ---> System.Xml.XmlException: 'Text' is an invalid node type. Line 5, position 28.

In your consumer code or client you would have something like this.

XmlDocument _xdoc = new XmlDocument();
'load the document
string _result = ws.SaveQuestion( _xdoc.OuterXml );
catch( Exception _ex )

Thank you for your reply.

My client code is the following: (in client-side javascript)
var xmldoc = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.DOMDocument.4.0");
xmldoc.async = false;

var node = null;

node = xmldoc.createProcessingInstruction("xml", "version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'");
node = null;
var root = xmldoc.createElement("QUESTION");

var curEle = xmldoc.createElement("CONTENT");
curEle.text = Form1.editor.value;
curEle = null;

curEle = xmldoc.createElement("ANSWER");
curEle.text = Form1.ans.value;
curEle = null;

savequsid = service.SmallQA.callService(savequestionResult, "SaveQuestion", xmldoc.xml);

Is there a problem? How to do? thanks.

XML vs XML Web Services
I'm getting up to speed with XML and have the following questions: 1) Knowing XML means knowing how to design and create XML Web Services? 2) I found the amount of details on XML/XML Web services overwhelming, harder to digest than HTML or a new language. What's the best approach to learn and use it? Thanks.Please mark the post(s) that have helped you as "Answer" 1. No. They are different things 2. I'd start with a basic XML foundation (basic XML, XPath, and XSD), then review the basic WS things: soap, WSDL, and then from there on move to the WS-specs.Tomas Restrepo ...
