Remarks

The LookupPrefix method returns the first prefix that matches the namespace URI specified. Multiple prefixes referring to the same namespace URI are not ordered in any particular way, so a particular prefix may not be returned each time when more than one is assigned.

Note

Namespace URI to prefix mappings can change from node to node in an XML document. As a result, the value of the LookupPrefix method may not be consistent from one node to the next.
