Speaking of DOM related methods... have many of you done DOM/JS
programming out there?

I recently used it to build a little script to highlight a row (which
another evolter nicely modified to make even better.) In some ways,
the DOM way of accessing things is real nice..

But - you totally leave out the non DOM browsers. Plus, some of the
references can be really hairy, and the kicker is - GOOD
documentation on the DOM seems scant, as far as a programmers

I am aware of the Mozilla one, but its for Mozilla, and its not a
super helpful reference. I've got some DOM stuff in Danny Goodmans JS
book which is okay - but not great. Wonder what you all thought.
