This document is the first release of the Document Object Model Level 2. It is guaranteed to change; anyone implementing it should realize that we will not allow ourselves to be restricted by experimental implementations of Level 2 when deciding whether to change the specifications.

This specification defines the Document Object Model Level 2, a platform- and language-neutral interface that allows programs and scripts to dynamically access and update the content, structure and style of documents. The Document Object Model Level 2 builds on the Document Object Model Level 1. Level 2 adds interfaces for a Cascading Style Sheets object model, an event model, and a query interface, amongst others.
This first release of the Document Object Model Level 2 does not have all these interfaces. It contains interfaces for the Cascading Style Sheets object model, the Range object model, filters and iterators, and the Events object model. The other interfaces will be added in future versions of this specification.
