abstract = {At its core, the Document Object Model (DOM) defines a tree-like
data structure for representing documents in general and HTML
documents in particular. It forms the heart of any rendering engine
of modern web browsers. Formalizing the key concepts of the DOM is
a pre-requisite for the formal reasoning over client-side JavaScript
programs as well as for the analysis of security concepts in modern
web browsers. In this paper, we present a formalization of the core DOM,
with focus on the node-tree and the operations defined on node-trees,
in Isabelle/HOL. We use the formalization to verify the functional
correctness of the most important functions defined in the DOM standard.
Moreover, our formalization is (1) extensible, i.e., can be extended without
the need of re-proving already proven properties and (2) executable, i.e.,
we can generate executable code from our specification.},
