and so, an answer to your more general question is that several
Objects in Prototype are extensions of native Javascript Objects, and
so their API is a composite of the Client-side Javascript API and the
Prototype API. It is unfortunate that AFAIK there is nowhere that you
can look them both up together.

Hmmm ... I wonder if a table on the wiki, that contained all the
attributes and methods of Prototype objects and linked to their
definitions in whichever API would be useful ...
