A selector is used in jQuery to select DOM elements from a DOM document. That document is, in most cases, the DOM document present in all browsers, but can also be an XML document received via Ajax.
The jQuery special event hooks are a set of per-event-name functions and properties that allow code to control the behavior of event processing within jQuery. The mechanism is similar to
fixHooks in that the special event information is stored in
NAME is the name of the special event. Event names are case sensitive.
fixHooks, the special event hooks design assumes it will be very rare that two unrelated pieces of code want to process the same event name. Special event authors who need to modify events with existing hooks will need to take precautions to avoid introducing unwanted side-effects by clobbering those hooks.
A string is designated htmlString in jQuery documentation when it is used to represent one or more DOM elements, typically to be created and inserted in the document. When passed as an argument of the jQuery() function, the string is identified as HTML if it starts with <tag ... >) and is parsed as such until the final > character. Prior to jQuery 1.9, a string was considered to be HTML if it contained <tag ... > anywhere within the string.
