5-0 out of 5 stars Sams Teach Yourself HTML and CSS in 24 Hours
Quite simply this book demistifies the process behind creating web pages. I had no idea how the system worked and I now I do. Just follow the steps as they are set out and you can have a page done in under 2 hours.

5-0 out of 5 stars Over 400 dog-ears in a 486 page book
You know a book is good when you dog-ear each page that contains something important, and this book is almost all dog-ears.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book to start with and learn from.
This book packs a TON of helpful information in 500+ pages, and does it in a way that anyone can learn from. The tutorial-like 1 hour lessons are perfect: 1. The book gives you a practical example to learn from, 2. They do not simply give you step-by-step instructions on how to the example and call it a lesson. The author explains everything he is doing so you can readily apply it to what you are working on for your site. 3. This author does a good job of "mind-reading" in that as you're looking at an example, he anticipates the parts that will look confusing to someone who does not know this material and lets you know what's going on.

5-0 out of 5 stars a great book to have at your side while coding
Who can remember all the little details surrounding XML?This book is a great summery of the most important XML technologies.It isn't a tutorial, it isn't for beginners, it's for "What's the name of that XPath function that removes excess spaces?" (normalize-space).Highly recommended for finding answers fast.

4-0 out of 5 stars easy to use and very useful
Keeping in mind that this is a "quick" reference, this book is organised well and very easy to use. When learning XML I had it by my side many times and almost always found what I was looking for. My only comment for improvement would be a more comprehensive index and maybe some a more suitable cover design (I am constantly pointing people to the text on the cover in order to convice them this is a book about XML).

5-0 out of 5 stars The single most essential xml book I own
This isn't a "textbook" of xml -- if you want a guided introductory tutorial, look elsewhere. But if you're anything like me, once you've got past the intro stage, you need a good memory-jogger and "explain-that-to-me-quick-just-one-more-time" resource at your side while you're working on a project. That's what this book provides, and it does it brilliantly, insightfully, and without the endless, distracting and generally useless drivel of many xml books. The explanations unfailingly come right to the point, and it's rich with short, helpful examples. It's obvious the authors have really developed in the real world! There is no book on my xml shelf that gets more use (and collects less dust) than this one. Buy it and you'll be glad you did. (I'm on my second copy!) ... Read more

I got this book for a class, taught by Lagerstrom, and loved it.It does a great job explaining XHTML and JavaScript.I had never been exposed to any type of programming, but this book made it simple.When I originally bought the book, I was sharing it with two other people.However, we all found it so helpful that we had to each buy our own to keep it on the shelf.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another book I'll be adding to my shelf.
Wow. Very few programming books I've read do much for me. Most of them are of no more use than a reference manual. But this book....this book is different. After just an hour of reading, I now understand the basics of JavaScript. The book does a great job explaining it. The other topic this book covers is XHTML, the successor to HTML. I admire the author's constant reminders to remain standards-complient in XHTML. Good job. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Might have been called The Definitive Guide to RSS
One of the very best O'Reilly books I've read in a long time, is Developing Feeds with RSS and Atom by Ben Hammersley. On 240 odd pages, the author introduces the reader to syndication, feeds, the RSS dialects, the Atom syndication format and discusses parsing of feeds and creating feeds. This he does concisely and to the point but with a sense of humor which I greatly enjoy.
5-0 out of 5 stars Get your creative juices flowing
Great intro to the history of RDF/RSS/Atom. Chapter 10 "Unconventional Feeds" will give you great ideas to create and manipulate feeds for yourself. Note that some content has been republished from "Content Syndication with RSS" (0596003838).

1-0 out of 5 stars Sorely Lacking Content
This book has some good resource citings, and general information on RSS.It includes a lot of discussion on the previous iterations in the RSS geneology...up to the current RSS 2.0 specification.

Editorial Review

XML is an elegant and straightforward way to define data-centric documents to feed almost any kind of data processing or rendering system. The linchpin of many XML solutions, however, is XSLT. This standard provides a way to transform your XML documents into other XML formats, HTML, and almost any other format you wish. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A book I really use regularly
I've been programming in a system that uses XSLT for reporting for about three years now.This is the book I actually use.It's getting beat-up and battered and has a couple of pages bookmarked - mostly in Chapter 3.I found the initial Hello World examples - where the same XML is processed for text, SVG, Java, and VRML - to be a really fascinating read.
1-0 out of 5 stars A Disappointment From O'Reilly.
This book is one of the most frustrating technical books I have ever read. The fact that it is from O'Reilly just makes it doubly insulting. The author doesn't bother to explain concepts. He just lists out the syntax for the various elements without bothering to explain how the instruction works. This book might be useful as an XSLT reference but it is useless as a learning tool. I totally agree with the other reviews of this book about the "huge honking examples" To give you an idea of how bad it is, the first XSLT example in this book is the obligatory "Hello World" example which is less than 20 lines. The second example is 3 pages long and uses concepts that have not been introduced at all!! The book also suffers from too many forward references. He keeps mentioning concepts that have no relation to the topic at hand. Sure, it might be great for completeness, but it just gets in the way when you're trying to learn a new concept and he keeps throwing additional, esoteric (by his own admission) stuff at you. In my opinion this is a very poorly written book.

2-0 out of 5 stars Find Another book
This book was difficult to use, and I found that the author tried to cram too much into his examples.Some concepts were really poorly explained.Fortunately my company paid for this book, and not me. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good intro to XHTML
Don't even bother learning HTML 4 - XHTML will replace it eventually so you might as well go with the wave of the future.2-0 out of 5 stars Look Elsewhere
Slap "for dummies" on a book and you will get the dummies to buy it. :) This book just wears you out with all the extra chit-chat that really never gets to the point. I have read a few dummies books for programming languages and they are really not all that good because you can buy more comprehensive books that cover everything.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for Your Average Dummy
While this book is written in plain English and follows the usual Dummies model it is not a start-from-scratch tutorial.The author does not state this explicitly but in order to use this book effectively (because of the way it is written) you really need to have HTML under your belt before you take on XHTML.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Review of Perl & XML--XML for Perl Programmers
XML has begun to appear everywhere. XML has long served in hidden roles on servers and in configuration files. Microsoft Word 2003 for Windows now supports reading and writing XML to in it's wordprocessingML format. Unlike MS Word's horrible "Save As Web Page" feature, wordprocessingML, or wordML for short, is a clean usable format. The adoption of XML in a user space as common as MS Word in an accessible format means that developers have a rich opportunity in XML.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good book, but lots of errors in the code
I liked the way this book was structured - it was a quick read over a thanksgiving family visit, and it gave a good overview of what XML is and what XML isn't, and what tools are available already in Perl to use it. I particularly liked the middle of the book, and how it dealt with trees and event streams. First there was in short intro chapter on why you'd want to parse XML as an event stream, and some simple modules that give back event streams. Then the next chapter would be a longer one on SAX - the definitive way to do event streams. Same thing with trees and DOM. It ends with some examples of real-life XML processing, such as consuming and producing RSS feeds. The book also has the best description of Unicode I've ever read, and did it with just a few pages.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good Overview Of XML And Supporting Perl Modules
I have wanted to learn about XML, but I found the pure XML books dry and too theoretical.However, putting XML in the context of something familiar, i.e. Perl, made it much more accessible.This book gives a nice overview of XML parsing using event based and tree based parsers that are available as Perl modules.The book presents SAX and DOM standards compliant modules as well as modules with more Perlish interfaces, e.g. XML::Grove and XML::Twig.It discusses the pros and cons of event vs. tree parsing of XML as well as a few advanced technologies such as database integration and SOAP.The only knock I have on the book is that the examples are a bit contrived and do not show how to solve meaningful problems. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Would be better if the sample files were available
No doubt about it, this is a very good book for learning about FrameMaker's interaction with XML. I agree with the other reviewers: this is way better than the info supplied by Adobe in both the FM manual and in the supplementary PDF's that come with FrameMaker. One caveat: the example files available for download from Apress's Web site (the publisher) don't match the narrative in the book. This may be a great disappointment to you as it was to me. Reading along and looking at the pictures in the book was not the same as exploring live examples -- and possibly using them as the basis for my own XML. Still, there were illustrations provided in the book, and with some imagination, there was information to be gained.

5-0 out of 5 stars Saved an outrageous amount of time and frustration
Recently I had to use FrameMaker as authoring tool for DoocBook, it was quite a challenging task because it required learning a lot of new stuff. FrameMaker is a powerful and sophisticated tool, with XML capabilities that were build on top of its SGML legacy, so it's a pretty complex beast to learn. This book was just right on the spot; it allowed me to save an outrageous amount of time and frustration. I don't know if it can be valuable for seasoned FrameMaker users, but I am sure it's a great investment if you have to deal with FrameMaker and XML starting from scratch

5-0 out of 5 stars Debafflement
This is a great introductory crossover text for both xml programmers and FrameMaker users who want a cram course in structured layout. The first third of the book is devoted to FrameMaker for the XML expert-how to set up a document and master pages, create and use style sheets, and manage templates. The rest of the book explains, in clear and concise prose, how to get started with FrameMaker's approach to XML. Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Obsolete and belated book
This book is based on obsolete specifications and older SOAP implementation which is not even available for download. The Apache SOAP is already a piece of junk and Apache recommends to use Apache Axis (which is not in the scope of this book). All other implementation examples such as XMethods and UDDI4J are also obsolete as well. The APIs are already deprecated and the code discussed does'nt make any sense.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent starting point when dealing with web services
This book is really an excellent one for programmers who want to start with web services. It gives a compact overview of XML-RPC, SOAP, UDDI and WSDL. Especially Java programmers will find some good code listings. But don't expect more than an introduction to web services.

I am not sure what book the other two readers have read but it sure is not this one, I have been in the business for a number of years and the author offers trite remarks and even worse idioms to pad the book out. If you are interested in XML or Java I would suggest another book such as Mastering Java which actually tells you what Java and XML are for.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good concise introduction to Office XML and Smart Documents
This book provides a good overview of Microsoft's Office XML formats. In addition to covering these formats, it also provides some useful material related to Microsoft Office smart documents, an extension mechanism for Microsoft Office applications.
5-0 out of 5 stars
Clear, concise, and packed with practical knowledge. I work with XML, XSLT, and C# for a living, and this book had me using XSLT to whip up WordprocessingML documents in no time. I especially appreciated learning how to turn off the default "Word" display of ML documents in Internet Explorer. I'm also using Evan's great XSLT that mimics Word's "data-only" output format-- as part of a process to validate foreign tag sets in WordML documents. Thank you!

5-0 out of 5 stars If you think you might need it - BUY IT
This book answers a very specific need - you are working with the new Office xml formats. If you are directly reading or writing WordML, SpeeadsheetML, or the other xml formats - stop what you are doing, buy this book, and read it. It will put you miles ahead.

5-0 out of 5 stars Do you want to learn to speak XQuery?
This is simply a great introduction to XQuery. In general this is a book rich on examples. I used this to test every other query, and gain a more thorough understand of the particular topic. The best way to learn a new language is to practice - right ?
1-0 out of 5 stars Good contents, bad binding
This very good book gets only 1 star because of the poor quality of binding. A few months of (admittedly heavy) use is all it took for individual pages and whole sections to start falling out.
5-0 out of 5 stars Concepts & Practical Programming
Too many development books are slanted towards either concepts or practical, in-the-trenches development.This book manages to balance both by giving not only the what's and why's, but the how to's, and does so in a readable and highly credible manner.Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars not great.
The plain-English explanations of XML are very good.The problems are in the code examples.Often the comments are short and ill-considered, and the code is presented in an illogical order.It's a good book, but unless you're great at reading other people's code (I'm not), you will need to do some digging.4-0 out of 5 stars Slick and detailed
If you are new to coding, and want to learn about the XML objects in Flash, and how they interact with PHP, ASP and Java, this book will more than get you started. Very well commented source code also.

3-0 out of 5 stars No support
To be fair, I am giving them 3 stars.I purchased this book months ago to get me started with XML in Flash.I have not read the whole book, and gave up rather easily.I am not saying the book is bad, I just wanted to say that if you tell your readers the web site will be an "invaluble resource for learning the ins and outs of using XML in Flash" you might want to offer more than just the source code.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars XML in a Nutshell
This is a well-written reference on XML 1.1.Slightly over half the book is tutorial in nature, while the remainder of the book is reference material (on XML, Schemas, XPath, XSLT, DOM, SAX, and character sets).The explanations were clear and the reference portion quite complete. I recommend this book as a good reference on XML.
3-0 out of 5 stars Specialized reference book for XML with JAVA
This books starts out with a quick explanation and walkthrough or XML 1.0 specification that is pretty good. It is lacking a XML Schema (XSD) section as well covers very briefly the XSLT (XML Stylesheets) anyone wishing to anything with sytlesheets after reading this book will be disappointed. XPath coverage is pretty good as well as SAX, & DTD. XLink, XPointer, are talking about but nothing in depth. All example code is in JAVA. Anyone wanting specialized knowledge of ASP.NET / .NET / MS SQL usage of XML should look elsewhere (this is somewhat understandable due to the publish date.)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This is the only XML book I have - I skimmed through several and this one was far and away the best.You will have to know what you are trying to do and sort of figure out which parts of the book to pay attention to as there is so much there.I spent some time with DTDs only to realize they were unnecessary for what I was doing.But the book allowed me to build an application from scratch. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but too many errors
This is a relatively good cookbook approach. It gets you started quickly with hands-on exercise development as you read the text. The review exercises and case problems are good, because they step you through a little at a time and in some cases show what you should be getting as a result. However, the type-in code and the text itself have lots of errors throughtout the book, so if you're unsure what to do, and can't discern where the text is wrong, that could be a show-stopper. For such an expensive book it should have been better edited.
1-0 out of 5 stars Perspectives on XML
JUST CORRECT THE ERRORS IN THE TEXT AND ATTACHED FILES!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for learning XML on your own
This is one of the best books that I have read on XML.It is an excellent book for teaching yourself XML.The author creates fictional application scenarios in each chapter so you learn XML within the context of the application.The exercises are challenging but not too difficult.The topics covered range from DTD, XML schema, XSL, XPath and DOM. The author doesn't try and cram too much in the book.He is very thorough in what he covers so topics like SOAP, SQL support within XML are not addressed. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars May-be wait for 2nd edition?
I bought this because of the JXUL project.To that end I found this book very handy to understand that basics, intermediate aspects and application of XUL, RDF, XBL, etc.3-0 out of 5 stars Quickly out of date - wait for 2nd edition?
I bought this because because of the JXUL project.To the end I found this book very handy to understand that basics of XUL programming and quickly got me up to speed.5-0 out of 5 stars Great book!
In my line of work with SGML, the transition into XML comes pretty natural and with that the notion of "Hey, there is really a lot of cool stuff one can achieve with this!". Especially when you add XUL, XBL, RDF, and JavaScript/DOM to this.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Passed with 984
I used this book together with the corresponding Training Guide, by the same authors (this was redundant because the two books essentially repeat each other - I could have just used the Training Guide.) I think these authors are amazing - they have ability to present everything in such an easy understandable way, that I didn't just memorize the stuff for the exam but actually understood it. Now my next one is 70-229 - SQL server exam, I wish Kalani had a book for that one as well...

5-0 out of 5 stars I passed the exam with this book
This book is pretty good at explaining the needed topics. I only used this book to pass the exam and found it compact and accurate.
