The HTMLDocument object is an abstract representation in the W3C DOM of the document node for an HTML document tree. Scripts reference this object via the document object.

This object inherits properties and methods from a chain of node objects in the W3C DOM core module, namely the root Node object and the Document object. To this set of properties and methods, the HTMLDocument object adds properties and methods that apply specifically to HTML documents (in contrast to XML documents)properties such as referrer and body, and methods such as write( ). Browser implementations add numerous additional proprietary properties and methods. See the full discussion of the scriptable implementations of the HTMLDocument object within the document object.
