 * Interface for a list of XML attributes.
 *
 * This interface allows access to a list of attributes in
 * three different ways:
 *
 * 1.) by attribute index;
 * 2.) by Namespace-qualified name; or
 * 3.) by XML qualified name.
 *
 * The list will not contain attributes that were declared #IMPLIED
 * but not specified in the start tag.  It will also not contain
 * attributes used as Namespace declarations (xmlns*) unless the
 * http://xml.org/sax/features/namespace-prefixes feature
 * is set to true (it is false by default).
 *
 * The order of attributes in the list is unspecified.
