The HTML DOM is a W3C standard and it is an abbreviation for the Document Object Model for HTML.

The HTML DOM defines a standard set of objects for HTML, and a standard way to access and manipulate HTML documents.

All HTML elements, along with their containing text and attributes, can be accessed through the DOM. The contents can be modified or deleted, and new elements can be created.

The HTML DOM is platform and language independent. It can be used by any programming language like Java, JavaScript, and VBScript.
