DOM – Document Object Module

According to the DOM, everything in an XML document is a node.
The DOM says:

  • The entire document is a document node
  • Every XML element is an element node
  • The text in the XML elements are text nodes
  • Every attribute is an attribute node
  • Comments are comment nodes

Example :

<Movie name="RaOne">
Going to release in Dec 2011
	Shahrukh Khan
	Red Chilly
