Internet Explorer Document Object Model

The heart of Dynamic HTML is the Document Object Model (DOM) that Internet Explorer supports. You can think of every element in an HTML document as an object—including the HTML elements and information that they contain—as well as aspects of the Web browser itself and any included Java applets, ActiveX Controls, or other elements. The DOM exposes these objects, making them accessible to you through scripts that you can write and include with the document.

Before Internet Explorer 4 and Dynamic HTML, the Document Object Model was limited. It could expose Java applets, ActiveX Controls, and the Web browser window properties, such as window size and location. The model exposed a limited number of HTML elements, however. The HTML elements that were supported by past object models were primarily limited to HTML Forms elements.
