Standards information


The text node that invokes the IHTMLDOMTextNode::splitText method has a IHTMLDOMAttribute::nodeValue equal to the substring of the value, from zero to offset. The new text node has a IHTMLDOMAttribute::nodeValue of the substring of the original value, from the specified index to the value length. Text node integrity is not preserved when the document is saved or persisted.
