Syntax:

node.normalize()

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    <title>

</head>
 
<body onload="normalizeNode()" style="text-align:center">
    <h1>GeeksforGeeks</h1>
    <h2>DOM normalize() Method</h2>
    <button onclick="normalizeNode()">
        Normalize
    </button>
    <button onclick="addNode()">
        Add node
    </button>
    <p>There are <span id="count"></span> child nodes.</p>
   
    <script>
        // onload is used to reset the child text nodes
        // count when page is refreshed and addNode
        // function is used for addNode button
        function addNode() {
 
            // Creating a text node named "Normalize"
            let textNode =
                document.createTextNode("Normalize ");
           
            // Using variable text_body to
            //access the whole body
            let text_body = document.body;
 
            // Adding text node to the end of the body
            text_body.appendChild(textNode);
 
            // Count is used to store number of child text
            // nodes present in the document
            let text_node =
                document.getElementById("count");
 
            // innerHTML fetches value of text_node and
            // update it with new value.
            text_node.innerHTML =
                text_body.childNodes.length;
        }
        // normalizeNode function is used to Normalize button
        function normalizeNode() {
            document.normalize();
            let text_body = document.body;
            let node_count =
                document.getElementById("count");
            node_count.innerHTML =
                text_body.childNodes.length;
