Following example demonstrates the usage of the nodeName attribute −

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
   <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");

         document.write("Nodename: " + xmlDoc.nodeName);
         document.write(" (nodetype: " + xmlDoc.nodeType + ") <br>");

         x = xmlDoc.documentElement;

         document.write("Nodename: " + x.nodeName);
         document.write(" (nodetype: " + x.nodeType + ") <br>");
      </script>
   </body>
</html>
