DOM stands for the Document Object Model; this is an API for accessing XML or HTML structured documents. Native support for DOM in Gnome is on the way (module gnome-dom), and will be based on gnome-xml. This will be a far cleaner interface to manipulate XML files within Gnome since it won't expose the internal structure.

The current DOM implementation on top of libxml2 is the gdome2 Gnome module, this is a full DOM interface, thanks to Paolo Casarini, check the Gdome2 homepage for more information.
