Subject: Re: DOM Level 1 Becomes a W3C Recommendation
>> Is there a summary of the differences between the PR and Recommendation
>> versions of the spec? Or are they identical?
>No the spec has evolved. Only to clarify or to fix bugs that were found.
>I guess it is fair to ask for a summary of changes. Here it is:
>* wstring changed to DOMString
>* changed Attribute interface to Attr
>* moved pi to extended interfaces
>* even though this can't be formerly specified in IDL some attributes
>are now defined to raise an exception on setting or getting. This
>CharacterData.data, Node.dataValue, and ProcessingInstruction.data
>* added text about duplicate entities and notations being discarded
>* added text about entities and notations not being editable in any way
>* changed INVALID_NAME_ERR to INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR
>* added INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR exception to createEntityReference
>* added text about the Entity nodes being readonly and not having any
>* changed ExceptionCode to unsigned short
>* added text about HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ERR being raised by
>Node.insertBefore/replaceChild/appendChild when the specified node is
>one of this node's ancestors.
>* added text about the Notation nodes being readonly and not having any
>* HTMLDocument.getElementById() returns null and not void if no matching
>* changed attributes HTMLSelectElement.options and
>HTMLSelectElement.length to readonly.
>* clarified description of attribute HTMLTaleElement.rows
>* changed attribute HTMLTableElement.tBodies to readonly
>* TMLTableElement.tHead and TMLTableElement.tFoot return null and not
>void if no such element exists.
>* changed description of HTMLTableRowElement.insertCell() to make it
>clear it inserts TD elements.
>* changed attribute HTMLTableSectionElement.rows to readonly.
>* added missing HTMLTextAreaElement.value attribute
>* added a References section
>I hope this helps.
