Remarks

Notations identify by name the format of unparsed entities, the format of elements that bear a notation attribute, or the application to which a processing instruction is addressed.

The nodeName property contains the notation name.

Requirements

msxml3.dll, msxml2.lib (MSXML 3.0)

msxml6.dll, msxml6.lib (MSXML 6.0)

Header and IDL files:

msxml2.h, msxml2.idl, , msxml6.h, msxml6.idl

Versioning

Implemented in:

MSXML 3.0, MSXML 6.0
