   <head>
      <script>
         function loadXMLDoc(filename) {
            if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {
               xhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
            } else // code for IE5 and IE6 {
               xhttp = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
            }
            xhttp.open("GET",filename,false);
            xhttp.send();
            return xhttp.responseXML;

      </script>
   </head>
   <body>
      <script>
         xmlDoc = loadXMLDoc("/dom/node.xml");

         x = xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName('Employee');
         for (i = 0;i < x.length;i++) {
            while (x[i].attributes.length > 0) {
               y = x[i].attributes[0];
               z = x[i].removeAttributeNode(y);

               document.write("Removed : " + z.nodeName)
               document.write(": " + z.nodeValue)
