Okay, so as I mentioned earlier the browsers have the ability to create XML…documents from scratch and to do them in Firefox, you call the function…document. implementation. createDocument. That's the method that you use in…order to create a new document and you can see the example right here. This is…how it's called. It takes a few arguments. The first argument is the Namespace…URL to use and we are not going to get too deeply into namespaces right now…because they are fairly complex objects, but you should just know that you can…pass an empty string for this.…The second argument is the name of the RootTag that you want to be at the base…of the XML document. And again you can pass them to strings for that, but if…you pass a string here that will become the root tag that's at the base of the…document. And the third argument is the document type and again this is bit of…an advanced concept.…
For now we are going to use the constant null and in fact in most of the real…world situations, this is what you will use any way. So I'm not going to go too…
