4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but could use more even level of detail
Mr. Goldfarb is on a tear with yet another book about XML and XML technologies. In this case it's about the integration of XML into Microsoft's Office Suite for 2003. This is an impressive peice of work and it shows through in the book, which is far superior to his XML handbook, though it does suffer from similar problems. Once again the book has aggressively short chapters and has an uneven level of detail. In addition some of the chapters feel like a lift from the handbook, which is not necessarily a bad thing give that they are from the same author. And the book also has a strange organization, for instance leaving the explanation of XML standards and syntax to the last few chapters of the book. 4-0 out of 5 stars Great guide anyone with a little O2K3 experience can pick up
With the XML advantages in the Office 2003 suite of applications not being glaringly obvious (at least not to me), I gave this book a whirl.I'm glad I did.5-0 out of 5 stars Using XML in Office 2003 - for technical writers
In my efforts to learn and understand XML the past year and a half I have come upon a decided lack of interest for the subject among my technical writing colleagues. Single-sourcing with XML has simply been too difficult to set up. You need a DTD or schema (or EDD in FrameMaker) before your can start writing, and style sheets to present it. It seems that XML has mostly been used in web services like on-line shopping. Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Book cover torn apart
The book was probably "good as new" as they claimed until it was violently shoved into the package. The cover was almost torn apart, barely in one piece.

2-0 out of 5 stars A tad bit disappointing
I bought this book being completely convinced that it was a complete reference on the basic XML technologies along with an introduction to XML, XML's history and development and so on. It shows up to my disappointment, that the book is largely influenced by a number of corporations using XML to make money, and is therefore *not* focussed very much on the actual technologies.
5-0 out of 5 stars The One source you need to answer any question about XML
It took Charles Goldfarb, Paul Prescod and many others, sixty-seven chapters to explain all there is to know about XML and XML related technology.This book must be the most complete reference book when it comes to XML: any thing from history of XML in Chapter 1 to VoiceXML in Chapter 46 and everything in between.This book is filled, and each chapter is appropriately marked with, Introductory Discussions, Application Discussions, Tool Discussions, Case Studies and Friendly Tutorials.

3-0 out of 5 stars Necessary for SGML; useless for XML
This book is, regrettably, the one authoritative book on the SGML standard.Given how broad and confusing the SGML standard is, it's not surprising that this book on it is equally opaque -- this is, in my experience, the worst-written technical book I've ever seen that is not actually inaccurate.But if you're doing serious SGML development, you have no choice but to get this book and to spent forever trying to make sense of it.4-0 out of 5 stars Required SGML Reading IF
you are planning on really getting into the world of SGML.If you are a beginner, or just playing with SGML, this book isn't for you.The book does contain the entire ISO 8879 standard and is extensively crossreferenced.After five years using it, I still find it easy to get lost inthe references.If you want the final, definative word from the MAN whowrote the standard, this is it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Turgid, obscure, confusing; but essential for advanced SGML.
This is a particularly badly written book on a particularly badly designed and written standard, SGML. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Delivers on its promises
It might not be enough for the code gurus, but then it all goes to the tools you're using: for example XML programming has different flavors if you're using .NET instead of Java.5-0 out of 5 stars Full-spectrum Applications of XML
In this book you can find almost any applications of XML, including the latest development of Web services and VoiceXML.5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible Reference Book + Bonus Material
There is nothing in this book's title or product description that indicates that it teaches XML programming.If that's the type of book you're seeking I recommend "Definitive XML Application Development" by Lars Marius Garshol.If, however, you're an architect, chief technical officer or IT functional manager this book will provide you with one of the most complete and comprehensive descriptions of XML that's available.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book for sgml and xml resources in publishing.
Goldfarb, the inventor of SGML, and two other experts present the HARP Analysis methodology for assessing publication operations in an intuitive visual way.
