General Remarks

Creating an entity reference with this method is the same as using createNode where the type parameter value is NODE_ENTITY_REFERENCE and no namespace is specified. You cannot specify a namespace within the name parameter.

Although this method creates the new object in the context of this document, it does not automatically add the new object to the document tree. In other words, although the ownerDocument property of the new node points to this document object, the parentNode property is set to Null. To add the new object, you must explicitly call one of the node insert methods, insertBefore method, replaceChild method, or appendChild method.

The nodeType property has the value NODE_ENTITY_REFERENCE.

This method applies to the following objects and interfaces:

DOMDocument and IXMLDOMEntityReference.
