5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for DTD designers
This book is great if you are looking on how to design DTDs. For that you need to already know about XML. It is not a "software" book in the sense that it does not have a line of code and it does not explain to you how to "program" XML. I have already read some books about XML and how to program it. I wanted a book which could explain to me how to...

1.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not for learning XML
The first 1/3 defines DTD syntax. This section is horrible unless you already know it. It briefly mentions a topic and regurgitates a definition and then fails to explain the syntax and intricasies. The 2nd 1/3 covers some examples. However, this is done at a very high level. It explains almost nothing about how they work. The last 1/3 is worthwhile and covers...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for DTD designers, 28 Jun 1998

This review is from: Structuring XML Documents (Charles F. Goldfarb Series on Open Information Management) (Paperback)
This book is great if you are looking on how to design DTDs. For that you need to already know about XML. It is not a "software" book in the sense that it does not have a line of code and it does not explain to you how to "program" XML. I have already read some books about XML and how to program it. I wanted a book which could explain to me how to design a DTD so I could create my own XML application. I found that book! However, before you buy this book, make sure that it really corresponds to what you are looking for.

The 2nd 1/3 covers some examples. However, this is done at a very high level. It explains almost nothing about how they work. The last 1/3 is worthwhile and covers some interesting advanced topics. This book is only worth something to someone who is not interested in hands-on XML development. Also, it was confusing how it kept describing SGML-only features and mixing these with the SGML/XML features.
