- Specifies the width, in pixels, of certain content elements.
- Sets the wrap style (soft, hard, or off) for a text element.
- Specifies how an element is aligned with respect to its parent; that is, specifies which baseline of the element is to be aligned with the corresponding baseline of the parent. Defaults to the baseline with the same name as the computed value of the alignment-baseline property.
- The ‘baseline-shift’ property allows repositioning of the dominant-baseline( a baseline-table and a baseline-table font-size which are those of the nearest block-level ancestor element and are applied to its root inline box.) relative to the dominant-baseline.
- The attribute fill specifies the filling color or the behavior of an animation after it has finished.

Each ClientRect object contains read-only left, top, right, and bottom properties describing the border box, relative to the top-left of the viewport. For tables with captions, the caption is included even though it is outside the border box of the table.
trueif an element matches a given selector. Otherwise,
Inherited from Element
- Returns the number of direct children of this node that are elements. Read-only.
- Retrieves a live collection of child elements of an element.
- Reflects the class attribute as an ordered list of the whitespace separated class names and has convenience methods for add, remove, contains and more.
- Retrieves the first child of this node that is an element, if there is one, or null otherwise. Read-only.
- Retrieves the last child of this node that is an element, if there are any element children, or null otherwise. Read-only.
- Retrieves the element node that is a sibling to this element node (a direct child of the same parent) and is immediately after it in the DOM tree, ignoring text nodes, comment nodes and any other non-element nodes. If there is no next element sibling, the property value is null. Read-only.
- Retrieves the parent node of this DOM node, if the parent is an element node; null if the parent is not an element or if there is no parent. Read-only.
- Retrieves the element node that is a sibling to this element node (a direct child of the same parent) and is immediately previous to it in the DOM tree, ignoring text nodes, comment nodes and any other non-element nodes. If there is no previous element sibling, the property value is null. Read-only.
- Returns the first element that matches the provided selector.
- Returns a list of elements that match a provided selector.
- Non standard. Gets a text from a given location around the edges of the element.
- Returns the value of the content attribute.

- Retrieves an attribute node by name.
- Gets an attribute node that matches the specified namespace and name.
- Determines whether a content attribute exists on an element.
- Determines whether a content attribute in a specified namespace exists on an element.
- Parses and inserts HTML code at or beyond the edges of an element within the document hierarchy.
- Releases a pointer captured by an element (using the setPointerCapture method).
- Removes a specified content attribute from an element.
- Removes a specified content attribute in a specified namespace from an element.
- The requestFullscreen method provides a way for presenting web content using the user’s entire screen. The API lets you easily direct the browser to make an element — and its children, if any — occupy the full available screen space, without borders or other chrome elements.
- requestPointerLock lets you lock the target of mouse events to a single element while hiding the cursor.
- Scrolls the page to the point where the element shows up.
- Sets the value of a content attribute.
- Sets the value of a content attribute in a specified namespace.
- Assigns a specified pointer to an element. This method is used to ensure that an element continues to receive pointer events even if the contact moves off the element.
- The onerror event occurs when the request could not be completed because of an error.
- After the onload event has occurred, responseText contains the complete server response.
- When the onprogress event occurs, partial data can be retrieved using responseText.
- The ontimeout event occurs if the ontimeout period elapses before the onload event occurs.

- Determines if two nodes are the same node.
- Returns a value indicating whether or not the object supports a specific DOM standard.
