Docmuentation for predefined objects, e.g. Image?

Where is the documentation for the predefined objects that aren't part
of the Core? Objects like Document and Image were documented in the
Javascript 1.2 documentation, but are absent from any documentation I
can find for Javascript 1.5. I suppose I can just use the Javascript
1.2 documentation, and ignore any changes in the last ten years, but I'd
really prefer to target the more recent Javascript 1.5.

Is this what you're looking for? <http://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/

There is a contradiction. If you posted with a proper From header, I might
tell you why.

Your signature is borken, too. It should be delimited like this:

evangelism: XHTML 1.0 Strict
madness: XHTML 1.1 as application/xhtml+xml

The reason you don't find them is that they are not part of the
Javascript Core/ECMAScript specification any more, because they are
have been standardized by a completely different group.
The corresponding DOM objects are specified in the W3C DOM Level 2
standard, either Core or HTML:
http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2-Core/
http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2-HTML/

There are some de-facto standard properties in browser object models
that are not part of a W3C standard, often called "DOM 0". These
are found in browser-specific documentation, along with proprietary
features, like
http://developer.mozilla.org/en/Gecko_DOM_Reference
or
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...50(vs.85).aspx

Good luck
