With DOM Enlightenment, you'll learn how to manipulate HTML
more efficiently by scripting the Document Object Model (DOM) without a DOM library. Over the past decade, developers have buried the DOM under frameworks that simplify its use. This book brings these tools back into focus, using concepts and code native to modern browsers. You'll understand the role jQuery
plays in DOM scripting, and learn how to use the DOM directly in applications for mobile
devices and specific browsers that require low overhead.
