A Brief Overview of Browser Object Models

In an effort to help bring stability to Web development, a group known as the World Wide Web Consortium developed a browser object standard called the Document Object Model (DOM). This model defines every element on an HTML page and provides the capability to access it. Both Microsoft and Netscape are working toward fully integrated support for the DOM in their browsers. As a result, the most current versions of both Internet Explorer and Netscape Communicator are very consistent in their support for browser objects, making your HTML pages look pretty much the same regardless of which browser is used to view them. This is especially good news for JavaScript programmers because it means that you can pretty much count on the same collection of objects being available.

NOTE

There is no way that this book can completely cover all the ins and outs of the DOM. If you would like to learn more about it, visit www.w3c.org/DOM.
