About the book:

Intended to be the only XML book you need, Inside XML covers everything from creating and defining XML documents, including document-type definitions and what you use them for, to using them in your apps as well as looking at some Web-specific implementations. Producing an XML document is only the start, you need to be able to use it in your programs and this book covers handling XML with JavaScript or with Java, using XML's document model or with SAX--the Simple API for XML--which is easier to use than parsing the entire document tree.

XML is about displaying information as well as managing it and there is a section on how to display XML in a browser with XML style sheets (CSS) or with XSL. XML transforms one type of document into another; a powerful feature Inside XML makes it easy to master.

If you want to learn how to use XML and what to do with it, this is the book for you, covering both Microsoft and non-Microsoft XML tools. It's full of detail with plenty of code samples and links to relevant Web pages and tools. A huge book, that is clearly written and well arranged, it's up-to-date enough to cover XML schemas and also looks at some of the XML standards that are starting to appear, from XLinks and XPointers to XHTML, so it will be useful for some time to come. And it finishes with a look at the Vector Markup language designed to use XML to handle graphics, and WML (best known from WAP phones). This book really does cover everything you could want to know about XML. --Penny Jannifer
