DOM Scripting Resources

§ DOM | JavaScript

Last night Jeremy and I gave a SkillSwap talk on ‘JavaScript and the Document Object Model.’ Essentially we wanted to show the kind of things that can now be achieved by using JavaScript to interogate and manipulate the DOM, emphasizing that the bad old days of code forked DHTML are way behind us.

The talk was well received and I think we got our message across, but we struggled in one area: that of supplying sources of further information. A List Apart has some useful scripts exploring this area, as does Simon Willison’s Stylish Scripting blog; Quirksmode covers the browser discrepancies in painstaking detail; but the only useful reference I’ve found which documents methods and properties such as createElement() and nodeValue is the Mozilla.org Gecko DOM Reference.

So the question is: are there any other useful sites out there which provide a reference for DOM scripting?
