    I always keep http://www.gotapi.com/ handy. They use w3schools' DOM reference, but also have references for tons of other languages.

    W3Schools... is overrated. They have more errors and outdated information in their content than I like.

    Mozilla.org does have good documentation.

    Here are two more:

    Code for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, & Opera, then add fixes for IE, not vice versa.

    W3Schools is nice - but their stuff seems to be very IE-centric.

    abb and Kravvitz have already linked to Moz docs... additionally I think the MDC is becoming a great resource.

    Of course we all need to study the W3C specs. They are not extremely "user-friendly" but they are fairly easy to navigate once you get used to them.

    As for myself, I usually go straight to the W3C docs (especially for DOM/HTML questions) then I look at docs for specific browsers to see if they implement that feature as described in the W3C.

    IE HTML and DHTML Reference

    Of course there are always things that you can't discover by "reading". For example, Safari uses the same values as IE does for the event button property. I do agree that those values are more logical - but show me where Safari documents this break from the standard.
