I'm George Rypysc (Rip-ISH), a longtime Mozilla fan.

I don't check in here that often so contact me at georgethree+devmo AT gmail DOT com

(note-to-self: I came across this web, DOM, etc reference - Google DocType).

Old / obsolete stuff:

  Most of my contributions here have focused on the DOM (document, form, event) and the Browser Feature Detection document.

Quick Ref (obsolete MediaWiki syntax - pre-DekiWiki days...)


0. Get feedback on revised properties section of DOM:document and copy over to actual article if others think it's an improvement.

awk script to do some of wiki-list to wiki-table conversion:
gawk -F: '{print "\"|-|<code>" substr($1,3) ":" $2 "</code>||" substr($3,2) "||\","}' domTemp.txt > dom1

1. (maybe - if work more w/XML) Update XML in Mozilla

2. Enhancement: Browser Feature Detection and related docs (orig. on DevEdge ):

Is this doc even useful to people/used by people?:
date access count
2007-08-24 8,405
2007-11-06 9,540
2007-12-16 10,702
2008-07-06 12,971

3. Migration: DOM Sample Code (<title> = "Samples using DOM 1, DOM 2, CSS and JS")

Get uploaded to ? -

4. 1. Update DOM Levels (I couldn't find any other doc which tracks level of DOM/HTML5 support)

  • the bugs mentioned in the doc probably need updating - e.g. Never mentioned for DOM3/DOM L3 see bug 212218
  • doc lists five modules to DOM3, but six given at
  • DOM Level 3's "XPath module" != XML's "XPath v1.0"? (document.implementation.hasFeature("XPath","3.0") == true, not "1.0")
  • +DOM Level 0 for historical completeness (but focus on how Gecko "supports"), Definition of "DOM0" = "Although the W3C never produced a specification for DOM 0, it was nonetheless a partially documented model and was included in the specification of HTML 4.", also
  • Newer DOM-expanding specs?: WHATWG HTML5, Forms2, etc
  • Refs: DOM owners, Old? DOM roadmap,, src: mozilla/dom/public/idl

5. Consistency, completeness (remove red-links): DOM document, navigator, and window.

6. Misc:

7. Special:Wantedpages

8. Completeness: Interfaces, HTML:Element
