DOM MASTA' [Jul. 18th, 2002|12:42 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Are you the fucking DOM masta?


  • I really hate the DOM.
  • I kinda like the DOM.
  • I had to read a billion specs to get this to work.
  • IE and Mozilla kinda implement the DOM, nowadays? Kinda.
  • This is my first venture into the DOM.
  • I think I'll use the DOM more often.
  • Mozilla is noticably faster with the above two-line script. Go Mozilla!
  • I like pain.

What's good with DOM? Looking at the code, it seems that it can be done with Javascript and CSS...

Go read an intro to the DOM.

The DOM is not a language! It's an API. I used JavaScript, because that's the only language consistently available everywhere. (If I was targetting MSIE only, I could've used VBScript).

JavaScript does not define things like "getElementByID()" ... that's the DOM.

I thought Mozilla was 100% DOM 1.0 compliant? No? Been waiting for DOM, looks cool, and hopefully MS will not try to High Jack, it with extra's and stuff. Oh, and the reason, for the comment, could ya' post the links to you use to learn it. [Yes sir, I be lazy today -- what do expect; after playing Never Winter Nights for close to 8 hours straight! Blasted game, is eating up all my time :P ).
