Summary and Resources
The Document Object Model represents elements, text, and other types of nodes within an XML document as a series of parent-child relationships. By manipulating these individual nodes, you can affect the page itself. In addition to DOM Core methods, an XHTML page can also expose properties and methods that are part of the DOM HTML module, which attempts to integrate many of the DHTML properties that programmers have been using for years.
- Check out the DOM Level 2 Core and DOM Level 2 HTML Recommendations from the W3C.
- Read the Understanding DOM tutorial (developerWorks, August 2001).
