Umm, maybe I interpreted the message differently, but I thought he was asking which DOM it was that Javascript adhered to. I'm guessing it's the DOM as released by W3C, which is similar to (but, of course, not the same as) IE4+. For further info, find the release notes. I don't actually know, just guessing.
