Belonging to a document

Andy, you said: "If the element belongs to a document"--how do you know if it does? By using getDocumentURI? The preceding paragraph seems to imply that you will always get a result using get..URI; but this sentence seems to imply that sometimes it won't. When would it not belong to a document and what would get..URI do in that case? Elf 11:02, 23 March 2007 (PDT)

The complete sentence is "If the element belongs to a document then it is safe to assume that the element is a domCOLLADA element.":

  • This sentence is in the paragraph discussing parent elements, and it's not clear how this info is related to the parent.
  • What is a domCOLLADA element and why is it important to know whether you can assume it?

Terminology questions

  • Is "COLLADA Object Model" the same as "COLLADA DOM"?
  • Is "Reflective Object System" a component of COLLADA, or of COLLADA DOM?
