Hi-

I've bookmarked the w3c for when I want to act like a scientist -- I know it is a good source to learn from though :: Are there any other great resources that start at the beginning and by the end get you working with it? It doesn't have to be an easy read, I'm just trying to get a good understanding of what the DOM is and how I can manipulate it from a Web development standpoint.

Thanks so much
-Madcat

I always reach for o'reilly's books, bit of an addiction, kinda like WmW but I find them to be the best resource for anything.

O'Reilly books are great, no doubt --

w3c schools is also a great source for information :: thanks.

But is the DOM one entity combining html/css/xml? I noticed the w3c schools label it as XML DOM tutorial. Or are there separate DOM's? HTML DOM, CSS DOM, XML DOM. See my need for clarification;)

Madcat,

I think that what you're really looking for is what W3Cschools calls the "DHTML DOM", that is the say the browser API. Instead of the XML tutorial you went to, try this instead

[w3schools.com...]

Given that the vast majority of Confusing Things are browser-specific, i find myself going to msdn [msdn.microsoft.com] (blech!) and mozilla's style guide [mozilla.org] a lot. Take everything with several grains of salt, though!

The Javascript section of Peter Paul Koch's website is incredibly useful for this sort of thing. Do a search on google for "Peter Paul Koch javascript." It will be the first result.

Here's a good basic definition [thinkquest.org] on a site that's a non-profit student project to promote standards usage.
