Hi Boris,

If I start on the usual TR page:
  http://www.w3.org/TR/

"DOM" Is one category.

The question may be "How to I get to the TR page?"

The "Standards" page is linked from the top of every page:
  http://www.w3.org/standards/

And there, you will find a link in the first paragraph and under quick  
links for /TR

On the home page, in the first paragraph on the right (about w3c),  
there is a link to "standards"
that also takes you http://www.w3.org/TR.

So the missing piece, it seems, was the link to /TR/ from "Standards."  
I've just updated this page
to try to make that clearer:
   http://www.w3.org/standards/

Let me know if you think that will help.

  _ Ian
