Interface DocumentType

Each Document has a doctype attribute whose value is either null or a DocumentType object. The DocumentType interface in the DOM Core provides an interface to the list of entities that are defined for the document, and little else because the effect of namespaces and the various XML schema efforts on DTD representation are not clearly understood as of this writing.

DOM Level 3 doesn't support editing DocumentType nodes. DocumentType nodes are read-only.

Template arguments

interface DocumentType(DOMString);


Name Type Description
entities [get] NamedNodeMap!DOMString A NamedNodeMap containing the general entities, both external and internal, declared in the DTD. Parameter entities are not contained. Duplicates are discarded.
internalSubset [get] DOMString The internal subset as a string, or null if there is none. This is does not contain the delimiting square brackets.
name [get] DOMString The name of DTD; i.e., the name immediately following the DOCTYPE keyword.
notations [get] NamedNodeMap!DOMString A NamedNodeMap containing the notations declared in the DTD. Duplicates are discarded. Every node in this map also implements the Notation interface.
publicId [get] DOMString The public identifier of the external subset.
systemId [get] DOMString The system identifier of the external subset. This may be an absolute URI or not.
