What DOMinates XML?

by Nate Zelnick Understanding the DOM Last time I talked about the problems of a work in progress like XML. XML has a lot of potential and it will change the world eventually, but there are a few things that have to happen first.In the last two weeks, the W3C has released its proposed recommendation for the Document Object Model (DOM) Level 1 specification and a draft for the eXtensible Style Language (XSL) as well as a new proposal for namespaces. Of all of these, the most immediately important is likely to be the DOM Core and Level One specification. DOM Core Level 0 (which came out about a year ago) described what worked between Navigator and Internet Explorer in some very broad terms. Since XML has emerged as the underlying structure for HTML itself -- an issue that has some very disturbing ramifications I'll deal with in a later column -- DOM Core Level One is now the basis for describing structured documents.The Core actually describes any structured document and has some special extensions for XML. DOM Level One HTML is specifically designed for the conveniense of browser makers to provide a common structure for how HTML documents are to be represented.
