1 Introduction

Microsoft web browsers support Element Traversal Specification [ElementTraversal:2008], W3C Recommendation 22 December 2008, with no variations, clarifications, or extensions.

The supported specification defines the ElementTraversal interface, which allows script navigation of the elements of a DOM tree, excluding all other nodes in the DOM, such as text nodes. It also provides an attribute to expose the number of child elements of an element. It is intended to provide a more convenient alternative to existing DOM navigation interfaces, with a low implementation footprint.
