In some applications it may be important to specify a range across a document rather than a particular point in the document. For instance, the selection a user makes with a mouse is not necessarily going to match up with any one element or node. It may start in the middle of one paragraph, extend across a heading and a picture and then into the middle of another paragraph two pages down. Any such contiguous area of a document can be described with a range.
