A QualifiedName is created from 3 AtomicString's: a namespace, a
prefix and a local name. See the XML specification for the explanation

files (for example, HTMLNames.{h|cpp} or SVGNames.{h|cpp}) as it will
give you the different QualifiedName's that are already supported and
you will see how a QualifiedName is created.
The second conversion from String to AtomicString is easy: there is a
constructor that will do it for you (see in
