Deep DOM Details

Although all modern browsers support the DOM, they don't all support it in exactly the same way, which is a minor headache for designers using the techniques shown in this chapter, but a major migraine for coders harnessing the DOM to build complex, web-based applications. Fortunately for such developers, Peter-Paul Koch's DOM Compatibility Overview keeps detailed track of these DOM differences (http://www.xs4all.nl/~ppk/js/index.html?version5.html). If the page should move during one of its frequent updates, simply navigate to http://www.xs4all.nl/~ppk/.

The tireless Mr. Koch additionally maintains the free W3C DOM Mailing List, whose members include sophisticated script jockeys from around the globe (http://www.xs4all.nl/~ppk/js/list.html). The “W3C” in the group's name does not imply W3C ownership or endorsement. It is used to distinguish between the W3C DOM and any other—for instance, to make clear that it is not a mailing list for coders who are interested in discussing the Microsoft IE 4.0/Windows DOM.
