    Actually, the DOM (document object model) is created from an XML (or HTML etc) document. Then a scripting language is used to manipulate the DOM to create a dynamic Web page. JavaScript is the most common language for doing this and I know Microsoft has JScript, which is a port of JavaScript but there are a few differences between the two. I know that I read somewhere that there were other languages that could be used to manipulate the DOM, but I can't recall where I read that and Google has been no help. Thanks though.

    Javascript runs on the client side and scripting languages run on the server side, so it depends on what you mean by manipulating the DOM. If you mean to make dynamic web pages then pretty much any language will work server side. If you mean once the page has been completely loaded to the client and you want to react to them typing or clicking around, then your pretty much stuck with javascript, ajax and comet.

    Yes, Perl can be used using this module: http://search.cpan.org/dist/XML-LibXML/ It is well developed and very widely used.

    Java itself can be used to manipulate the DOM too. It have at least 2 API for it.
