We have no suport for old browsers in BE. This is fine and no problem. but at least I, as I have said befoe,like code that at least fails silently. So for me JS in the FE has to be defensive.

Harharhar. Ok things have improved since the bad old days. But working around JS-bugs used to be part of the job.

Anyway, the so called DOM 0 is a de-facto standard (ie a collectoin of stuff supported by all current browsers). The W3C DOM is a standard, but has the problem that is is AFAIK by no existing browser compeletly implement. Granted, there are things you can rely on, and for newer browsers I count getElementById to it.
