                "<title>Pride And Prejudice</title>" +
                "</book>");

    XmlNode root = doc.FirstChild;

    //Create a new attribute.
    string ns = root.GetNamespaceOfPrefix("bk");
    XmlNode attr = doc.CreateNode(XmlNodeType.Attribute, "genre", ns);
    attr.Value = "novel";

    //Add the attribute to the document.
    root.Attributes.SetNamedItem(attr);

    Console.WriteLine("Display the modified XML...");
    doc.Save(Console.Out);

  }
}
