Notation -- no children The DOM also specifies a NodeList interface to handle ordered lists of Node s, such as the children of a Nodeor the elements returned by the Element. That means that an actual implementation need only expose methods with the defined names and specified operation, not actually implement classes that correspond directly to the interfaces.
This allows the DOM APIs to be implemented as a thin veneer on top of legacy applications with their own data structures, or on top of newer applications with different class hierarchies. The conventional solution to this in object-oriented design is to define factory methods that create instances of objects that implement the various interfaces.
The Core DOM APIs are designed to be compatible with a wide range of languages, including both general-user scripting languages and the more challenging languages used mostly by professional programmers. To ensure a consistent API across these platforms, the DOM does not address memory management issues at all, but instead leaves these for the implementation.
Naming Conventions While it would be nice to have attribute and method names that are short, informative, internally consistent, and familiar to users of similar APIs, the names also should not clash with the names in legacy APIs supported by DOM implementations.
Furthermore, both OMG IDL and ECMAScript have significant limitations in their ability to disambiguate names from different namespaces that makes it difficult to avoid naming conflicts with short, familiar names. So, DOM names tend to be long and quite descriptive in order to be unique across all environments.
The Working Group has also attempted to be internally consistent in its use of various terms, even though these may not be common distinctions in other APIs.
For example, we use the method name "remove" when the method changes the structural model, and the method name "delete" when the method gets rid of something inside the structure model. The thing that is deleted is not returned.
The thing that is removed may be returned, when it makes sense to return it. These operations are fairly expensive in Java and COM, and the DOM may be used in performance-critical environments, so we allow significant functionality using just the Node interface.
Because many other users will find the inheritance hierarchy easier to understand than the "everything is a Node " approach to the DOM, we also support the full higher-level interfaces for those who prefer a more object-oriented API.
In practice, this means that there is a certain amount of redundancy in the API. The Working Group considers the "inheritance" approach the primary view of the API, and the full set of functionality on Node to be "extra" functionality that users may employ, but that does not eliminate the need for methods on other interfaces that an object-oriented analysis would dictate.
Thus, even though there is a generic nodeName attribute on the Node interface, there is still a tagName attribute on the Element interface; these two attributes must contain the same value, but the Working Group considers it worthwhile to support both, given the different constituencies the DOM API must satisfy.
A DOMString is a sequence of bit quantities. This may be expressed in IDL terms as: The UTF encoding was chosen because of its widespread industry practice. A single numeric character reference in a source document may therefore in some cases correspond to two array positions in a DOMString a high surrogate and a low surrogate.Because you use it as the name says — when you want your function to be executed against each element of array.
If you want it to be executed only again some of them, there's a method called exactly like that —.some() (see timberdesignmag.com). timberdesignmag.com(null, [undefined, undefined, undefined]) is equivalent to Array(undefined, undefined, undefined), which produces a three-element array and assigns undefined to each element.
How can you generalize that to N elements? If not, write it out, "mark it", and move on, until all non marked elements (which initially every array element is) have been written out.
By the end of the process, all the content would have been displayed, and in a random order.

Within the filter function, this refers to each DOM element in turn. The parameter passed to the function tells us the index of that DOM element within the set matched by the jQuery object.
