Dump Document in a New Window - Firefox 2.0 Result

This section provides the Firefox 2.0 result of the tutorial example that dumps the browser built-in 'document' object as an XML message in new browser window by using DOM API attributes and methods.

If you run the JavaScript page, DOM_HTML_Document_Dump.html, in Firefox 2.0, you will get the "document" XML dump result in a new window:

         <script type="text/javascript">
function nodeToXML(node, indentation, out) {
   out += indentation+"<"+node.nodeName.toLowerCase();
   if (node.attributes!=null) {
      for (var i=0; i<node.attributes.length; i++) {
         var item = node.attributes.item(i);
         var value = item.nodeValue;
         if (value==null) value = "";
         out += " "+item.nodeName+"=\""+value+"\"";
   out += ">\n";
   for (var i=0; i<node.childNodes.length; i++) {

   return out;
function show() {
   var w = window.open('', 'Popup', '');
   w.document.write('<html><head><title>Document Dump</title>');

   var s = nodeToXML(document, '', '');
   s = s.replace(new RegExp('&','g'),'&amp;');
   s = s.replace(new RegExp('<','g'),'&lt;');
   s = s.replace(new RegExp('>','g'),'&gt;');


         <script type="text/javascript">
   document.write('<p>Click to show document in a new window:</p>');

               Click to show document in a new window:



            <input type="button" onclick="show();" value="Show">
