5.0 out of 5 stars A great place to start for techie types, 13 Feb 2007

This review is from: XML in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
True to form for the Nutshell guides, its brief, to the point and explains most XML related concepts XSL, XPATH, XML Schema etc in a really readble format.

If you've every written an kind of programming language then this is an excellent guide to take you through XML.

I wouldn't say the coverage is 100%, it simply wouldn't fit in a concise guide like this if it were, it will cover the vast majority - theres always google for that one case of something really odd.

This review is from: XML in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
As for all the 'In a Nutshell' books this gives a good overview and context for XML, so even if you don't end up doing any programming, you could benefit from reading it anyway.

This review is from: XML in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
I sold this book. I wish I hadn't.

I write 'correct' XHTML: all the online tutorials tell me that, hey, I've got it down already. They're wrong; I hadn't even skimmed the surface!

This hefty tome takes you all the way from first XML principles to tantalising challenges, where you see just how powerful a universally-understood protocol can be. I read those parts, but wasn't ready to put them into practice ... I want the book back!!

I'd advise getting it, using it until the pages have turned to mulch, and keeping up with the related websites. Don't let its weight & volume put you off, like I did!
