Using untranslated source code.

I want to use the DOM to manipulate the untranslated source code seen in the code view.  However, dw.getDocumentDOM('document') returns the DOM for the translated code.  How do I get around this?
    Thanks,

isn't that the point of using the getDocumentDOM..
to return the tree of objects..which you then edit?

also this NOTE from DW help..

If the argument is "document", the caller must be applyBehavior(), deleteBehavior(), objectTag(), or any function in a command or Property Inspector file in order to perform edits to the document.

(and an example)..

The following code snippet uses dreamweaver.getDocumentDOM() to access the background color of the current document:

var theDOM = dreamweaver.getDocumentDOM("document");
theDOM.body.bgcolor = "#000000";

hope this helps

There are things in dreamweaver called translators, which
translate the code seen in the code view to something else (such as an image tag) before it is displayed in the design view.  So you can tell dreamweaver to translate

<made_up_tag>

to

<img src="made_up_tag.gif">

So that there is some visible representation of the new tag in design view, while the code view still contains only the original tag.  However, the object theDOM = dreamweaver.getDocumentDOM('document') is the DOM for the TRANSLATED code, so if I place my cursor on the tag "<made_up_tag>" in the code view, theDOM.getSelectedNode().tagName is "IMG" not "MADE_UP_TAG".

I want to know how to get the DOM for the untranslated code (ie the code you see in the code view).

Beautifully explained.
It would seem that translating capabilities are called
with the DOM and need to be separated from it.
I  don't know how you would do this..but search at..
