Name

Element.removeAttribute( ): delete a named attribute of an element — DOM Level 1 Core:

Synopsis

void removeAttribute(Stringname);

Arguments

The name of the attribute to be deleted.

Throws

This method may throw a DOMException with a code of NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR if this element is read-only and does not allow its attributes to be removed.

Description

If the named attribute has a default value specified by the document type, subsequent calls to getAttribute( ) return that default value.
