    Range.cloneRange()

    The Range.cloneRange() method returns a Range object with boundary points identical to the cloned Range.

    The returned clone is copied by value, not reference, so a change in either Range does not affect the other.

    Syntax

    clone = range.cloneRange();
    

    Example

    range = document.createRange();
    range.selectNode(document.getElementsByTagName("div").item(0));
    clone = range.cloneRange();
