how can I find documentation on screen, window etc?

P: n/a

I an trying to figure out how to use some browser objects like screen,
window, parent, document, top etc. These are available as built-in global
variables when programming the browser using javascript.

it seems that they are not part of the HTML DOM (well, "document" is but
properties like "document.location" aren't) so I don't know where to look.

They are described in netscape's documentation for javascript 1.3 but that
is well out of date now. The newer netscape documentation confines itself to
just the language features and leaves everything else to the DOM

there are lots of tutorials and unofficial information, but I could really
use a spec to go by, so that I can produce some portable code. Any clues
please? - all this "trial and error" programming is driving me mad.

many thanks
