Get the following build error when add XmlDocument to code in portable library
eg. XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
If I remove the line the build error goes away.

Your project is referencing Windows.winmd. This is not supported. Please remove the reference to Windows.winmd.

Additionally, I don't know of any PCL profiles which include System.Xml.XmlDocument.

System.Xml.Linq.XDocument, meanwhile, appears to be present in Profile6, Profile19, Profile24, Profile42, Profile47, Profile102, Profile147, Profile158, Profile240, Profile255, Profile336, and Profile344.
