DOM Enlightenment

DOM Enlightenment

Read the free online version of the “DOM Enlightenment: Exploring the relationship between JavaScript and the modern HTML DOM” by Cody Lindley.


This book is not an exhaustive reference on DOM scripting or JavaScript. It may, however, be the most exhaustive book written about DOM scripting without the use of a library/framework. The lack of authorship around this topic is not without good reason. Most technical authors are not willing to wrangle this topic because of the differences that exist among legacy browsers and their implementations of the DOM specifications (or lack thereof).
