Product Description

Amazon Review

In 21 chapters, this book takes you all the way from "What is XML and why should I care?" to detailed code for rendering XML with XSL (Extensible Stylesheet Language). This is a hands-on tutorial, and by the end readers will know how to author and work with XML documents. Each chapter ends with exercises, questions and answers, to consolidate what has been learned.

The authors have divided the tutorial into three "weeks" of study. The first is introductory, and explains the make-up of an XML document, along with DTDs (Document Type Definitions). The next week looks at XML parsing, links and pointers, and displaying XML in Internet Explorer 5.0 and Mozilla, the first XML-compliant version of Netscape Navigator. Week three tackles programming the XML DOM (Document Object Model), using CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and learning about XSL (Extensible Stylesheet Language). There is also a brief look at XML applications such as MathML and VML (Vector Markup Language).

This is a well-written tutorial, covers plenty of ground, and has lots of code examples. There is considerable depth and detail for the main topics, making this a valuable guide. The focus is on creating and viewing documents, and it is weak on other aspects such as using XML in multi-tier applications, or programming XML with Java. There is also a tendency to focus on Microsoft's implementation of XML in Internet Explorer 5.0, the first mainstream browser with substantial XML support. The pace is fast, and knowledge of HTML is assumed. --Tim Anderson

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disapointed 8 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am a very big fan of the Teach Yourself ?? In 21 Days Series, but this book really does let the side down.
The Author starts off by talking far too much about theory which is not backed up with practical exercises which you can try out yourself.
I found there to be things in the later chapters, which I needed to know in order to understand the earlier chapters. For example, it isn't until day 12 that we are shown how to make XML work in Internet Explorer and day 13 for other Internet Browsers. As a result I found myself unable to put into practice any thing I was taught in the earlier chapters.

5.0 out of 5 stars We need more Writers like This! 13 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Xml, let's face it, is a tough subject to learn. I was envisaging months of searching for info, learning, cross-referencing with all the sources, to try and get myself in a position to say I knew what I was talking about. And then this book turns up! To find a writer who not only clearly understands his subject but is able to write in such a clear way is wonderful. Mr North must be recommended highly for this work, and should be THE reference in the future. If you need to know about Xml then do buy this book. I cannot recommend it more highly than that!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real Teach-Yourself book 14 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have reviewed many of "Sams Teach Yourself" series. I think Simon did a good job on covering the usefulness of XML without going through the huge SGML background check.
Having three year's SGML programming practices, I still found several surprises and useful reference links in this book.
Well, I have to admit that I failed to finish reading it in 21 "hours" which I normally did for these Teach Yourself books..... ;-)
