  * An attribute may be present or not present.
  * If it is present, it is a string triple: namespace, local name  
and value. For most attributes, the namespace has a marker value that  
signifies no namespace.
  * The HTML-specific DOM properties that reflect attributes behave  
as required by legacy and may not have a clean conceptual model.
