How Convert Datetime (YYYY/MM/dd HH:mm:ss) To yyyy-MM-dd



How do you write a date value to an XMLElement in .NET 3.5 XMLDocument object. 


 I am using the following:


DateTime orderDate = new DateTime();
orderDate = DateTime.Now; // 2010-08-24 16:45:46

string st = XmlConvert.ToString(orderDate, "yyyy-MM-dd");     // st="2010-08-24"
DateTime dt2 = XmlConvert.ToDateTime (st, "yyyy-MM-dd");   // dt2 = "2010-08-24 00:00:00"

I would like to remove the time section "00:00:00". I only need to write a date in the XML file with the following format :


Order date is defined like this in the xsd file : <xs:element name="OrderDate" type="xs:date"/>


Thanks for your support.
