    XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
    doc.LoadXml("<book xmlns:bk='urn:samples' bk:genre='novel'>" +
                "<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" +
                "</book>");      

    //Create an attribute collection.
    XmlAttributeCollection attrColl = doc.DocumentElement.Attributes;

    foreach (XmlAttribute attr in attrColl){
       Console.Write("{0}:{1} = {2}", attr.Prefix, attr.LocalName, attr.Value);
       Console.WriteLine("\t namespaceURI=" + attr.NamespaceURI);
