Generic base class for building and manipulating HTML markup.

Objects, which have visual representation, are most likely subclasses of this generic HTML class. It provides a set of functions to define attributes, inline styles, stylesheet selectors, DOM events and inner HTML content either as static properties or calls to the object’s methods. Direct or implicit call to ‘toString’ method returns properly formatted HTML markup string, which can be used in document.write() call or assigned to the page innerHTML property.

The two-way linking between original javascript object and it’s DOM counterpart is maintained through the use of unique ID for each object. This allows forwarding DOM events back to the proper javascript master object and, if necessary, updating the correct piece of HTML on the page.

Constructor Syntax

var obj = new Active.System.HTML;
