Document Object Model: DOM is a platform- and language-neutral interface, that provides a standard model of how the objects in an XML object are put together, and a standard interface for accessing and manipulating these objects and their inter-relationships.
The DOM is an interface that exposes an XML document as a tree structure comprised of nodes. The DOM allows you to programmatically navigate the tree and add, change and delete any of its elements.
The DOM programming interface standards are defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The W3C site provides a comprehensive reference of the XML DOM.
