Dear Sir/Madam,

Following a USENET discussion I believe that 
<http://www.w3.org/DOM/#what> is misleading. Although it defines the 
Document Object Model in the first phrase the remainder of the paragraph 
refers to the usage of, and references to, the DOM. Consequently, the 
USENET poster decided that the DOM had something to do with Javascript 
and CSS. I think the paragraph should describe, and briefly define, the 
DOM. The next paragraph purports to explain "Why...?"  and should 
contain the information now in "What...?". The information currently  in 
"Why..?"  is about the definition process and belongs in a paragraph 
about that.

Thank you for your attention.

Regards, David.
