Website Terminology Glossary
The Document Object Model (DOM) is a programming interface for web documents. It represents the structure of an HTML or XML document as a tree-like structure where each element, attribute, and text node is represented by an object in the tree.
The DOM model provides a way for programs to access and manipulate the content and structure of a web page, allowing developers to dynamically change the content and style of a page without reloading the entire page. Using the DOM, developers can modify the content, attributes, and styles of individual elements or groups of elements, as well as add or remove elements from the page.
The DOM is an essential component of web development that provides a powerful and flexible way for developers to access and manipulate web page content.
