#include "nsIDOMNode.idl"

 * The nsIDOMDocument interface represents the entire HTML or XML document.
 * Conceptually, it is the root of the document tree, and provides the 
 * primary access to the document's data.
 * Since elements, text nodes, comments, processing instructions, etc. 
 * cannot exist outside the context of a Document, the nsIDOMDocument 
 * interface also contains the factory methods needed to create these 
 * objects.
 * For more information on this interface please see
