W3C DOM compatiblity tables updated

I did the W3C DOM tests in Mozilla 1.75 and Opera 8b and updated the tables. Mozilla doesn't show much progress (then again, it doesn't have to show much, it's already the browser that supports the W3C DOM best). Opera is on the move again.

See the Core, HTML, CSS, and Events tables.

The only minor problem I have with Mozilla is that it still doesn't support non-standard but very useful methods and properties like children[] and contains() which all other browsers support.

As to Opera, its programmers have clearly been busy:

Wow. That's really very useful. Here's hoping the Safari team have some fixes lined up for the DOM in 1.3.

The next version of Safari should be 2.0, and will be shipped with OS X 10.4 Tiger. I have a preview copy of it, and I have to say, although its scripting speed has dramatically improved (from being one of the slowest browsers to being one of the fastest - http://www.howtocreate.co.uk/browserSpeed.html ), there is very little else that has changed.

However, it is, of course, a preview, and I know that there should be more fixes before the final release (some time in the first half of this year - apparently).
