DOM - Level 0 (Standard)

The initial collation of document objects and properties from the de-facto HTML & JavaScript implementations.

The level 0 version of the DOM standard was compiled from the available functionality of the Netscape 3.0 and MSIE version 3.0 functionality. The principal input was derived from the HTML support provided by the browsers. As it stands, some attributes and methods are provided to support backwards compatability with these older browsers. Those items will likely become deprecated features and will in due course be withdrawn.
