SharePoint Customization: Content Editor Web Part (CEWP)

The use of the CEWP for this has proven valuable in our enterprise implementation of some added features. Thank you to the authors for posting this.

While the Content Editor Web Part is anything but ideal for actual "content editing" it does serve as a great tool for adding snippets of javascript to a page to manipulate the DOM or add a client side mini-application. I am a big fan of using the CEWP for these types of jobs.

One of the key things you can do in SharePoint using the content editor web part is manipulate the DOM using getElementByID.
