DOM = Document Object Model

In Javascript, you can access elements of the DOM using document related methods like:

var here = document.getElementById( idvalue )

The result of the "lookup" will be a value that is used to access the specified document element.

Does that help?

There are multiple document methods that return element references, but those are the only ones with which I am familiar:

For example, take a look at:
