An Introduction to the DOM
DOM stands for Document Object Model and refers to an interchange to web pages.
Programmers apply DOM to generate documents and establish their structure by adding or deleting content from the said document. The DOM interacts with different kinds of documents such as the XML and HTML documents.
Any element of substance or data found in HTML and XML documents can be approached, deleted or altered in any manner through the Document Object Model.
The DOM provides the cerebral model for the programming interchange, which can be cultivated in any way the implementation mechanism deems fit. DOM does not mandate over the manner in which the documents shall be implemented.
However, the DOM, as an object model, has influence over how the document is in its entirety and the traits of the objects composing the said documents.
What HTML DOM is
Document Object Model as an application programming interface verifies HTML documents. There is however a difference between the HTML and the DOM.
What jQuery DOM is
- HyperText Markup Language/ Document Object Model (HTML/DOM) manipulation,
- Cascading Styling Sheets (CSS) manipulation,
- HTML event methods,
- Effects and animations,
which is not a single technology but a collection of technologies that makes a cluster of web development operating procedures.
Another merit following the application of jQuery is that it has an extensive selection of plugins that are very fundamental to web developers for purposes of creating special features.
