Can you help me understand this a bit more?  I guess by "The Window 
object is a DOM object" you mean "Window() is a global javascript 
function we can use to construct objects and it is defined as part of 
the Document Object Model"?

How is "The Window object" related to "interface Window" of the HTML5 
spec? Maybe: the Window() object implements interface Window in the 
HTML5 specification?

Thanks,
jjb
