I was working with js and got a peculiar problem (it’s was unknown to me 😛 😀 🙁 ) about childNodes count in firefox and opera. Internet explorer showed perfectly. suppose my html is like
<ul id="ul_id"> <li id="id1"> One</li> <li id="id2"> Two</li> </ul>
Now the js:
objFather = document.getElementById('ul_id'); //get the father ul' ID arrayChildren = objFather.childNodes; //geting array of children childNum = arrayChildren.length;
Here childNum will give diff values for diff browser. FF, Opera counts the whitespaces . textnodes as child but IE is normal in this case.
