 Both is used. The proper use of xmldom.createNode and
 document.createElementNS, which are called by Format.XML::createElementNS
 depending on which browser is used, is just localname. The API docs of
 Format.XML::createElementNS demand prefix:localname.

 I'm a bit confused by this comment.  Our createElementNS method should be
 called with a qualified name (e.g. "alias:foo").  The
 createElementNS docs] say second arg is a qualified name (example uses
 "html:div") and the [http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-
 us/library/ms757901(v=vs.85).aspx#Y87 MS docs] say name should be
 qualified for ELEMENT_NODE (see remarks section).

 I see that the GeoRSS, KML, ArcXML, and OSM formats use the default
 namespace - but I think that "foo" is still a legitimate qualified name.
 (And Google Earth demands the default namespace iirc.)

 I'm still not seeing Format/XML.html test failures.  But I'll try more
