document object model

From Mathematical Markup Language (MathML) Version 2.0 (2001-02-21) | Glossary for this source

A model in which the document or Web page is treated as an object repository. This model is developed by the DOM Working Group (DOM) of the W3C.

From User Agent Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (2002-12-17) | Glossary for this source

In general usage, the term "document object" refers to the user agent's representation of data (e.g., a document). This data generally comes from the document source, but may also be generated (e.g., from style sheets, scripts, or transformations), produced as a result of preferences set within the user agent, or added as the result of a repair performed automatically by the user agent. Some data that is part of the document object is routinely rendered (e.g., in HTML, what appears between the start and end tags of elements and the values of attributes such as alt, title, and summary). Other parts of the document object are generally processed by the user agent without user awareness, such as DTD- or schema-defined names of element types and attributes, and other attribute values such as href and id. Most of the requirements of this document apply to the document object after its construction. However, a few checkpoints (e.g., checkpoints 2.7 and 2.10) may affect the construction of the document object.A "document object model" is the abstraction that governs the construction of the user agent's document object. The document object model employed by different user agents may vary in implementation and sometimes in scope. This specification requires that user agents implement the APIs defined in Document Object Model (DOM) Level 2 specifications ([DOM2CORE] and [DOM2STYLE]) for access to HTML, XML, and CSS content. These DOM APIs allow authors to access and modify the content via a scripting language (e.g., JavaScript) in a consistent manner across different scripting languages.
DOM (Document object model)

From Glossary of "Weaving the Web" (1999-07-23) | Glossary for this source

Within a computer, information is often organized as a set of "objects." When transmitted, it is sent as a "document." The DOM is a W3C specification that gives a common way for programs to access a document as a set of objects.

From Requirements for String Identity Matching and String Indexing (1998-07-10) | Glossary for this source

A series of API definitions to access and manipulate documents, both document structure and textual content. Currently, APIs for basic functionality for HTML and XML, with bindings to programming languages such as Java, ECMAScript, and C. All string parameters in the APIs are defined as Unicode strings. To assure consistent behavior of programs written in different languages and running on different implementations, uniform normalization and string indexing specifications are necessary.
embedded object

From Mathematical Markup Language (MathML) Version 2.0 (2001-02-21) | Glossary for this source

Embedded objects such as Java applets, Microsoft Component Object Model (COM) objects (e.g. ActiveX Controls and ActiveX Document embeddings), and plug-ins that reside in an HTML document.

From Voice Extensible Markup Language (VoiceXML) Version 2.0 (2004-03-16) | Glossary for this source

A platform-specific capability with an interface available via VoiceXML.
