Converting XML data to CLR object using XmlSerializer


My last post (Consuming a WebService from Silverlight) was all about accessing a Web Service/API from Silverlight. In the article, I described how to consume an external API, with a sample from the GeoName Web Services. This post is a continuation of that article. Here I am going to demonstrate how to convert the result output, which is in XML, to a CLR object, and of course use it as a datasource in a Silverlight app.
