The DomNode class

The om.DomNode class provides methods to manipulate a DOM node of a data tree.

This class follows the DOM standards.

A DomNode object is a node (or element) of a DomDocument.

Tag and attribute names of DOM nodes are case sensitive; "Wheel" is not the same as "wheel".

Text nodes cannot have attributes, but they have plain text. In text nodes, the characters can be accessed with the @chars attribute name. In XML representation, a text node is the text itself. Do not confuse it with the parent node. For example, <Item id="32">Red shoes</Item> represents 2 nodes: The parent 'Item' node and a text node with string 'Red shoes'.

If you need to identify an element, use a common attribute like "name". If you need to label an element, use a common attribute like "text".
