looking for the best online DOM reference

P: n/a
Ideally I could drill down through objects, events, methods, and
properties...

....and it would tell me where the IE (not DHTML) and Netscapte DOMs are the
same and where they differ,

....and it would actually document objects, events, methods, and properties,
rather than just listing their names.

Does such a thing exist?

I can usually find what I'm looking for on Google, but all I'm coming up
with are sample scripts, tutorials, and very poor references.

If I must buy a book, are there any books that do this?

I use the JavaScript Bible by Danny Goodman, 3rd ed. Go check it out at
the bookstore.

Tip: www.xs4all.nl/~ppk/js/ comes closest, and promises even more for the
future.
