For ECMAScript information and objects, see the ECMAScript Language Reference

Documentation Conventions

A greater-than symbol (>) is used to separate actions within a step and items in a cross-reference path. The > symbol is also used to connect consecutive links in an element tree structure where you can either click a plus symbol (+) or double-click each element to expand them.

When a single pathname can be written with a backslash for some platforms or a forward slash for other platforms, the pathname is presented with a forward slash to preserve case considerations in the UNIX* or Linux* operating systems.
