Pretty much.

Depends. For example:

<!doctype foohtml><head><title>One</title></head>
<body><p>Hello</p></body></html>

The parent of the P is body, (and the parent of body is html).

<!doctype foohtml><head><title>Two</title></head>
<body><ul><li><p>Hello</p></li></ul></body></html>

The parent of p is li, the parent of li is ul, the parent of ul is body
and the parent of body is html.

Does that help?
