    Node.prefix

    The Node.prefix read-only property returns the namespace prefix of the specified node, or null if no prefix is specified. This property is read only.

    Syntax

    string = element.prefix
    

    Examples

    The following alerts "x".

    <x:div onclick="alert(this.prefix)"/>
    

    Notes

    This will only work when a namespace-aware parser is used, i.e. when a document is served with an XML mime-type. This will not work for HTML documents.
