Getting the value of the xmlns attribute

selectsinglenode attribute
Sorry if this is the inappropriate place to post this question.

I've got some RDF data like
  xmlns:rdf = "http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
     <title>Internet Alchemy</title>
     <description>Internet Alchemy - last published 7/May/1999</description>

I want to get the value of the xmlns attribute, so I tried to use
objSource.selectSingleNode("rdf:RDF/@xmlns"), which does not return an attribute object.
The method call objSource.selectSingleNode("rdf:RDF/@xmlns:rdf") *does* return an
attribute object.

It seems that because xmlns is a reserved word, this particular method call does not
return an attribute object.  Is there a way around this?

p.s. Using XMLDOM from Microsoft IE 5.00.2014.0216

Many thanks in advance,
James Carlyle
