Chapter 21. DOM Level 2

Although the original DOM standard is a successful, well-established technology, it has been perceived to have some unnecessary limitations, and in particular does not support the Namespaces standard (see Chapter 10).

This chapter covers the core standard, the optional tree-walking and range selection components, but not the optional event-handling and styling components.
