The TreeWalker.parentNode() method moves the current Node to the first visible ancestor node in the document order, and returns the found node. If no such node exists, or if it is above the TreeWalker's root node, returns null and the current node is not changed.
The TreeWalker.previousNode() method moves the current Node to the previous visible node in the document order, and returns the found node. It also moves the current node to this one. If no such node exists,or if it is before that the root node defined at the object construction, returns null and the current node is not changed.
window.openDialog() is an extension to window.open(). It behaves the same, except that it can optionally take one or more parameters past windowFeatures, and windowFeatures itself is treated a little differently.
An XSLTProcessor applies an XSLT stylesheet transformation to an XML document to produce a new XML document as output. It has methods to load the XSLT stylesheet, to manipulate <xsl:param> parameter values, and to apply the transformation to documents.
This type represents a DOM element's attribute as an object. In most DOM methods, you will probably directly retrieve the attribute as a string (e.g., Element.getAttribute(), but certain functions (e.g., Element.getAttributeNode()) or means of iterating give Attr types.
The Document interface represents any web page loaded in the browser and serves as an entry point into the web page's content, which is the DOM tree. The DOM tree includes elements such as <body> and <table>, among many others. It provides functionality global to the document, like how to obtain the page's URL and create new elements in the document.
The Document.createAttribute() method creates a new attribute node, and returns it. The object created a node implementing the Attr interface. The DOM does not enforce what sort of attributes can be added to a particular element in this manner.
When a popup attached via the popup or context attributes is opened, the XUL document's popupNode property is set to the node that was clicked on. This will be the target of the mouse event that activated the popup. If the popup was opened via the keyboard, the popup node may be set to null. Typically, this property will be checked during a popupshowing event handler for a context menu to initialize the menu based on the context.
