The NonDocumentTypeChildNode interface contains methods that are particular to Node objects that can have a parent, but not suitable for DocumentType (en-US).

NonDocumentTypeChildNode is a raw interface and no object of this type can be created; it is implemented by Element, and CharacterData objects.


There is no inherited property.

NonDocumentTypeChildNode.previousElementSibling Только для чтения
Returns the Element immediately prior to this node in its parent's children list, or null if there is no Element in the list prior to this node.
NonDocumentTypeChildNode.nextElementSibling Только для чтения
Returns the Element immediately following this node in its parent's children list, or null if there is no Element in the list following this node.


There is neither inherited, nor specific method.
