document.head Redirect 1

« document


Returns the <head> element of the current document. If there are more than one <head> elements, the first one is returned.


var objRef = document.head;


// in HTML: <head id="my-document-head">
var aHead = document.head;

alert(; // "my-document-head";

alert( document.head === document.querySelector("head") ); // true


document.head is read-only. Trying to assign a value to this property will fail silently or, when in ECMAScript Strict Mode in a Gecko browser, throw a TypeError.
