XElement root = new XElement(ns + "Root", "content");  
Console.WriteLine(root.Name);  
Console.WriteLine(root.Name.LocalName);  
Console.WriteLine(root.Name.Namespace);  
Imports <xmlns="http://www.adventure-works.com">  
  
Module Module1  
    Sub Main()  
        Dim root As XElement = <Root/>  
        Console.WriteLine(root.Name)  
        Console.WriteLine(root.Name.LocalName)  
        Console.WriteLine(root.Name.Namespace)  
    End Sub  
End Module
