DOM Central contains information about how to use the Document Object Model (DOM) to create standards-compliant DHTML and dynamic web applications. DOM refers to how browsers and other software represent documents as objects to dynamically access and modify a document´s contents.
While there are many differences between the 4th generation browsers (Netscape 4 and Internet Explorer 4), many aspects of how they treated forms, frames, etc were the same. This common behavior between Netscape 4 and Internet Explorer 4 is what is known as the DOM 0. DOM 0 is not an official standard but refers to behavior that you can expect to be the similar (if not the same) in these two generatation 4 browsers.
Today, "the DOM" usually means W3C DOM which is the standard for all modern browsers. The W3C DOM is the future of web development.
