Review of the Document Object Model

At first glance, people look at web pages as though they are pages in a book, consisting of static text and images. It soon becomes apparent that there are things with which you can interact, such as links and forms. In fact, pages aren't static "paintings," but are actually built up out of parts.

Object Properties Methods
Volume dial minimum setting
maximum setting
Set volume to a specified level
Power Supply voltage Turn on
Turn off
