# - - - E l e m e n t . _ _ s e t i t e m _ _ - - - def __setitem__ ( self, key, value ): """Add an attribute to self. [ key is an attribute name as a string -> if key has namespace prefix not defined in self.doc.nsMap -> raise KeyError else -> self := self with its attribute (key), minus any trailing underbar if present, set to (value) ] """ self.__setAttr ( key, value )
