Quoting "jason.handby" <jason.handby at corestar.co.uk>:

>> I understand HOW the DOM works, but don't know how to use it

>> I'm looking for something like the Java API or PHP manual for

>> example, how in the world would you know .className was a
>> method or property of an HTML element?
>> I'm looking for a book or an online reference that can show
>> me such things.
