    Node.normalize()

    The Node.normalize() method puts the specified node and all of its sub-tree into a "normalized" form. In a normalized sub-tree, no text nodes in the sub-tree are empty and there are no adjacent text nodes.

    Syntax

    element.normalize();
    

    Example

    var wrapper = document.createElement("div");
    
    wrapper.appendChild( document.createTextNode("Part 1 ") );
    wrapper.appendChild( document.createTextNode("Part 2 ") );
    
    // At this point, wrapper.childNodes.length === 2
    // wrapper.childNodes[0].textContent === "Part 1 "
    // wrapper.childNodes[1].textContent === "Part 2 "
    
    wrapper.normalize();
    
    // Now, wrapper.childNodes.length === 1
    // wrapper.childNodes[0].textContent === "Part 1 Part 2 "
