public interface XmlName
extends XmlToken
Corresponds to the XML Schema xs:Name type. One of the derived types based on xs:string.

This kind of string is the same as the lexical representation used for XML 1.0 element and attribute names, e.g., "pre:a-b.cdef". It is just a physical string, however, and it should NOT be confused with XmlQName, which is a logical combination of localname and namespace URI.

Convertible to String.
