Elements with no NamespaceURI

If your document does not have any namespaces or an element within the document does not have a namespace, its namespace is considered to be global and its NamespaceURI is represented as an empty string (""). In such a case you can and should use these namespace aware messages passing an empty string for the NameSpaceURI.

Note:When parsing XML documents with namespaces you should always search by NamespaceURI and BaseName. You should not use the element's prefix and you should not attempt to ignore the NamespaceURI.
