Qualified Names

A qualified name (QName) is composed of a prefix and a local part. The prefix provides the namespace prefix part of the qualified name, and must be associated with a namespace Uniform Resource Identifier (URI).

The prefix functions only as a placeholder for a namespace name. Applications should use the namespace name, not the prefix, in constructing names whose scope extends beyond the containing document.
