Inside Technique : W3C DOM Table of Contents
Rewriting the table of contents to be completely standards based proved to be a challenge. Surprisingly more of this challenge was related to complexities of the W3C recommendation rather than compatibility issues between IE5 and Netscape Gecko.
The W3C DOM focuses on exposing node objects that represent the HTML tree. Manipulating the document requires you to navigate this hierarchy of objects. On the next page we introduce you to the W3C DOM properties and methods used to implement our table of contents scripts.
