    Document.head

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

    Syntax

    var objRef = document.head;
    

    Example

    // in HTML: <head id="my-document-head">
    var aHead = document.head;
    
    alert(aHead.id); // "my-document-head";
    
    alert( document.head === document.querySelector("head") ); // true
    

    Notes

    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.
