Document Object Model Reference - DOM Reference

P: n/a
I am working on downloading the 39,070 posts in this group and should
be done when I wake up. I will read the FAQ then too.

That said, now I will embark on some newbe questions. First and
foremost, is anyone willing to share any recommendations on up to date
references on the DOM? Books, websites, or whatever would be helpful.
I am ideally looking for something one step higher level than the
standard.

Beyond that, does anyone know of a good informational link for browser
detection that is up to date. I have run into a small DOM issue with
getting browser dimensions and would like to deal with the fact that
the Mozilla/Firefox/NN do not remove the width of the scroll bar from
the value of document.body.clientWidth.

Thanks for putting up with newbe questions here.

enjoy your day,

Sean

That said, we will wait for the newbe to assimilate
the FAQ (and a few percent of) those 39,070 posts
and get back to us if there is any specific thing
that is not covered.

Try the FAQ first, it really is very useful :)

The answers to Q2.9 and Q3.1 and Q3.2 will probably be particularly relevant
to your query.

Your service may hold a mere 39,070 posts; but yours was the 90,406th
post (in this group) received by my server since the last re-
initialisation of the count. I wonder how many Google has?

It is generally considered sufficient to have studied the newsgroup FAQ
(to answer common questions) and scanned its Notes, and to have looked
in the group to see if your specific question has been answered
recently.

The FAQ recommends Flanagan's books, and not using browser detection.

OTOH, ISTM that if, say, an Opera user has chosen to make his browser
claim to be Netscape 4.7, then that should be respected by executing
code suited to N4.7.
