Internet Explorer 6, Part I: DOM Standards Support

In this column we embark on a new series about Internet Explorer 6. The new browser version has just been released for preview. We will introduce in this series the new JavaScript features that are included in the new version. The new version includes additions and enhancements targeted to various kinds of populations. Users will find new productivity boosters such as tool rulers. Graphic designers will find new features in the Cascading Style Sheets. Developers will find, among other enhancements, new additions to the JavaScript language.

In this column we'll focus on new properties and methods of the Document Object Model. These are extensions to IE5.5's handling of the DOM standards as described in Columns 40, The DOM, Part I: Analysis, through Column 47, A DOM-Based Snakes Game, Part II. Like Netscape 6, IE6 is simply a more thorough implementation of the DOM standards. In particular, we'll show you how to set, get, and remove attribute nodes, how to replace, delete, insert, and append DOM strings, and how the new browser version adds support for the document object.

In this column you will learn:
