Book Description

1 Oct 2002 1904151086 978-1904151081
XML, the extensible markup language, is now a maturing technology with many selling points, as have been explained in books and on the Web for the past few years. This book takes you past the hype to show you how to use XML in your web development, from client-side use with CSS, XSLT, and scripting in the latest browsers, to basic server-side techniques in various environments, such as ASP and JSP. Its focus is on the practical, all theory being backed up by techniques that are actually used on the Web today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very practical oriented 25 Jan 2003
By Foti Massimo - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are dozens of books on XML, the difference is that this is solely focused on the web and very practical oriented; it's not that much about XML theory but it's full of real world examples. The most valuable chapters in my opinion are the ones covering XML support inside the various browsers, the info about client-side XSLT, XML and CSS and DOM manipulation with JavaScript are something that you will not find elsewhere

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, Concise and more practical than a nappy pin. 10 Feb 2003
By Hamish Fraser - Published on
Love this book - as a seasoned web developer with heaps of experience I find this book a great reference tool, fantastic prompter when I'm struggling with XML techonologies, all round very well written and did I mention already PRACTICAL.
If your confused now or then by XML or you know nothing and want to learn from scratch then BUY this book.
Chapters are well defined and organised, it covers everything from css - to XSLT, client side, server side applications and good practices. Well written - without this book my XML nappies would be on the floor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, with good practical excercises but... 22 May 2003
By Marvin Ray Baker - Published on
This is a good book which is a good reference for me. However, when I got the book and was working through some of the real world exercises. I wanted to download the files that are referenced by the book for the excercises. This is because the book explains more things related to the files than are in the snippets in the book. Anyway, I went to the site referenced and I am continuously getting the page of Death "page can not be displayed". Needless to say I am left wanting.
