I am trying to create such a resource for JavaScript only. Although I
haven't yet written a complete history of all this, you might find some
interesting point on my site. Check all the 'Introduction to...' pages,

That one's easy. Same site: http://www.xs4all.nl/~ppk/js/index.html?dom.html

I wrote a short history of the DOM:

The problem is that there is so bloody *much* to document. Not only the
various HTML, CSS and JavaScript versions, but also their practical
application in Netscape, Explorer, Opera, etc., each browser having several
versions and sometimes cross-OS incompatibilities.

It's just too much information and it changes so fast.
