/**
 * The <code>Node</code> interface is the primary datatype for the entire 
 * Document Object Model. It represents a single node in the document tree. 
 * While all objects implementing the <code>Node</code> interface expose 
 * methods for dealing with children, not all objects implementing the 
 * <code>Node</code> interface may have children. For example, 
 * <code>Text</code> nodes may not have children, and adding children to 
 * such nodes results in a <code>DOMException</code> being raised.
 * <p>The attributes <code>nodeName</code>, <code>nodeValue</code> and 
 * <code>attributes</code> are included as a mechanism to get at node 
 * information without casting down to the specific derived interface. In 
 * cases where there is no obvious mapping of these attributes for a 
 * specific <code>nodeType</code> (e.g., <code>nodeValue</code> for an 
 * <code>Element</code> or <code>attributes</code> for a <code>Comment</code>
 * ), this returns <code>null</code>. Note that the specialized interfaces 
 * may contain additional and more convenient mechanisms to get and set the 
 * relevant information.
 * <p>The values of <code>nodeName</code>, 
 * <code>nodeValue</code>, and <code>attributes</code> vary according to the 
 * node type as follows: 
 * <table border='1' cellpadding='3'>
