The Adobe SVG Viewer supports virtually all of the XML Core DOM levels 1 
and 2. We are waiting on implementing the SVG DOM until it stabilizes.

A listing of DOM methods supported by the Adobe SVG Viewer is located at 

FYI, the Adobe SVG Viewer is able to expose its DOM to the Internet 
Explorer script engine (Windows only) by using ActiveX, and to the Netscape 
4.x script engine by using LiveConnect. The lack of support for any such 
technology on IE/Mac is why no plug-in can expose a DOM to the IE/Mac 
script engine.
