mouth.



Verbal or Oral communication history is older than written histories.



Why all these? because of the word "DOM", which has been
used to mean something in IT, which takes more notice than the origin of the
word "DOM".



What is the DOM in IT?

1. The Document Object Model (DOM) is an application programming interface
(API) for valid HTML and well-formed XML documents. It defines the logical structure of
documents and the way a document is accessed and manipulated.



2. Document Object Model, the specification for how objects in a Web page
(text, images, headers, links, etc.) are represented. The DOM defines what attributes are associated with each
object, and how the objects and attributes can be manipulated. Dynamic HTML (DHTML) relies on the DOM to dynamically change
the appearance of Web pages after they have been downloaded to a user's browser.



3. As authors of HTML you are writing things that will be seen by people via
a browser. Therefore, you are writing for the browser. The browser builds an understanding
of your code when it reads it, that understanding is called the DOM and it exists inside the browser.



4. HTML code arrives

Browser interprets HTML and builds a DOM for the page

Browser allows javascript to alter the DOM

Browser shows the current state of the DOM, always the DOM.



Finally, a suffix forming nouns which refer to domain ( kingdom),

collection of persons ( officialdom), rank or

station ( earldom), or general condition ( freedom).
