Apache XML Xerces Parser

All:
I am in the process of learning XML and have the following question regarding the Apache XML Xerces Parser.
Where does one get the documentation? Is there a tutorial?
All I see on the xml.apache.org site is some examples - but none seem to specifically deal with converting XML to DOM. I see an example DOMWriter going from text to XML.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Since Sun's JAXP package is likely to become part of the standard Java release, you might as well use it instead of Xerces. There is an online tutorial somewhere around http://java.sun.com/xml/xml_jaxp.html
The JAXP package and Apache XML share a lot of code.

DOM is documented as a (mostly) language-independent facility. Try looking at the http://w3.org and http://www.xml.org websites.
Also, this is probably going to be very useful: http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/WD-DOM-Level-2-HTML-20001113/

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
