NoteNote:

In the .NET Framework version 2.0, the recommended practice is to create XmlReader instances using the XmlReaderSettings class and the Create method. This allows you to take full advantage of all the new features introduced in the .NET Framework. For more information, see Creating XML Readers.

After calling this method, the Name, NamespaceURI, and Prefix properties reflect the properties of that attribute.
