Document Object Model (DOM)

DOM is a description of how an HTML or XML document is represented in a tree structure. DOM provides a structure that facilitates access to the elements of an HTML or XML document by scripting languages with object oriented features (e.g. JavaScript). Various interfaces were initially implemented by web browsers to manipulate elements in an HTML document through JavaScript. This prompted the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to come up with a series of standard specifications that defined the W3C Document Object Model (W3C DOM). The W3C specifications are platform and language independent. The previous vendor-specific interfaces were dubbed intermediate DOMs. (from Wikipedia)
