MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:

Obsolete since Gecko 10.0 (Firefox 10.0 / Thunderbird 10.0 / SeaMonkey 2.7)
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

Note: Although this interface was previously implemented in Gecko, there was no way to actually create one. NameList has been removed effective with Gecko 10.0

Provides an abstraction for an ordered collection of name and namespace value pairs. Items can be accessed by a 0-based index. The DOM spec does not specify how the collection is to be implemented.
