Why can't I serialize hashtables

Answer 1)
The thing about XML Serialization is that it's not just about creating a stream of bytes. It's also about creating an XML Schema that this stream of bytes would validate against. There's no good way in XML Schema to represent a dictionary.

This limitation is not only Hashtable, the XmlSerializer cannot process classes implementing the IDictionary interface due to the fact that a hashtable does not have a counterpart in the XSD type system. The only solution is to implement a custom hashtable that does not implement the IDictionary interface.
