    Element.removeAttributeNS()

    removeAttributeNS removes the specified attribute from an element.

    In Firefox 3 and later, this method resets DOM values to their defaults.

    Syntax

    element.removeAttributeNS(
    namespace,
    attrName);
    
    • namespace is a string that contains the namespace of the attribute.
    • attrName is a string that names the attribute to be removed from the current node.

    Example

    // <div id="div1" xmlns:special="http://www.mozilla.org/ns/specialspace"
    //      special:specialAlign="utterleft" width="200px" /> 
    d = document.getElementById("div1"); 
    d.removeAttributeNS("http://www.mozilla.org/ns/specialspace", "specialAlign"); 
    // now: <div id="div1" width="200px" />
