<p>These attributes are only defined by this specification as

refers to elements having these attributes, elements from namespaces
that are not defined as having these attributes must not be
considered as being elements with these attributes.</p>

<div class=example>

<p>For example, in the following XML fragment, the "<code title="">bogus</code>" element does not have a <code title=attr-dir><a href=#the-dir-attribute>dir</a></code> attribute as defined in this
specification, despite having an attribute with the literal name
"<code title="">dir</code>". Thus, <a href=#the-directionality>the directionality</a>
of the inner-most <code><a href=#the-span-element>span</a></code> element is '<a href=#concept-rtl title=concept-rtl>rtl</a>', inherited from the
<code><a href=#the-div-element>div</a></code> element indirectly through the "<code title="">bogus</code>" element.</p>

<p>Currently, the <code title=attr-itemscope><a href=#attr-itemscope>itemscope</a></code>,
<code title=attr-itemprop><a href=#names:-the-itemprop-attribute>itemprop</a></code>, and other microdata
attributes are only defined for <a href=#html-elements>HTML elements</a>. This
means that attributes with the literal names "<code title="">itemscope</code>", "<code title="">itemprop</code>", etc,
do not cause microdata processing to occur on elements in other
namespaces, such as SVG.</p>

<div class=example>

<p>Thus, in the following example there is only one item, not
two.</p>

<pre class=bad>&lt;p itemscope&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;!-- this is an item (with no properties and no type) --&gt;
