Currently, the tag for DOMDocument reads:

domdocument is a class in PHP's DOM API to access and manipulate the DOM

I submitted an edit to at least capitalize DOMDocument and added a period. Currently it's just awful.

However, my real beef with this tag is that it isn't PHP specific. It's also used by Xerces, and probably a handful of other DOM/XML parsers. I feel we should generalize it, as you can use [php] [domdocument] to reflect the PHP specific version.

This came to my attention when posting Quickly selecting elements in the DOM. I opted simply to use the [dom] tag instead.

I made a change to the tag wiki, I also need to get it approved though.

The word DOMDocument is used by several languages and technologies to refer to an object covering the DOM.
