Here is a utility method for returning any embedded resource content as a string:

public static partial class Tools
{
    public static string GetEmbeddedContent(string resourceName)
    {
        Stream resourceStream =
            Assembly.GetAssembly(typeof(Tools))
.GetManifestResourceStream(resourceName); string content = null;
using (StreamReader reader =
new StreamReader(resourceStream))
{
content = reader.ReadToEnd();
} return content; } }
