This is just a subclass of HTML::Element. It works basically the same as HTML::Element, except that tagnames and attribute names aren't forced to lowercase, as they are in HTML::Element. HTML::Element describes everything you can do with this class.
Has currently no handling of namespaces.
XML::TreeBuilder for a class that actually builds XML::Element structures. HTML::Element for all documentation. XML::DOM and XML::Twig for other XML document tree interfaces. XML::Generator for more fun.
